Canada NewsWire: "Attention News Editors:
Canadians and Their Social Commitment: The Next Generation of Volunteers is Ready and Willing
TORONTO, Nov. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - Three Canadian workers in five (61%)
between the ages of 40 and 54 - the baby boomers - do some form of volunteer
work for a charity or community organization or plan to be socially involved
when they retire, according to a national survey on retirement conducted by
research firm SOM for Desjardins Financial Security.
Although there are more people over age 65 doing volunteer work in
proportion to the boomers (22% compared to 9%), the total potential for boomer
volunteers is greater (65% to 39%). Among people aged 55 to 64, 54% already do
volunteer work or intend to."
