Volunteer International Christian Service (VICS), a lay organization for Canadian Citizens, was established in 1971 by the Spiritans, the Congregation of the Holy Ghost.  We are a program dedicated to filling needs determined by people living in developing countries. Men and women of all ages, single and married, share professional and technical skills.


VICS volunteers are listeners rather than experts coming to do a job.  We serve through presence rather than evangelizing, working  with others to help people benefit from the fullest potential of their own human and natural resources; they try to foster an awareness of complete human and Christian dignity.


Though skill required vary with current requests, common needs include:


Medical Personnel

Accountants/book keepeers

Licensed Trades People
