Recognizing our Volunteers

April 7- 13, 2019 is National Volunteer Week in Canada. In the past we have showcased and highlighted some of volunteers and the work that we know they do. This year, we are sharing some of the thanks our volunteer Leaders have received from mothers, parents, and families that they have supported over the past year; 

  • "Thank you for the genuine support & guidance of Ailbhe & Lisa of LLLC East Vancouver through out my first few months journey of motherhood." - East Vancouver, BC
  • "Thank you to Darcie Light for helping me with my breastfeeding questions! Her patience and knowledge is greatly appreciated." - Richmond, BC
  • "Thanks for all the support this year, especially over the summer, when the community was so much more than just breastfeeding support for me. It made so much of a difference for me." Chestermere, AB
  • "Thank you for all of your ongoing support and contributions to breastfeeding in our community, with deep gratitude for Denise Martin. Thank you so much!!" - Newmarket, ON
  • "I'd like to thank Toronto Downtown Harbourfront leader Emily for her generous support and resources in a time when I needed it the most just after my baby was born. It was wonderful to meet other new mothers in our community, as well!" - Toronto Harbourfront, ON
  • "Thank you to all the leaders at LLLC-Ajax-Pickering for helping to grow my confidence as a breast-feeding mother and parent overall. I was amazed and so very happy when I found this group of like-minded and non-judgmental mothers all willing to talk about mothering unreservedly. You have really had a positive impact on my life." - Ajax-Pickering, ON
  • "Thanks Helen from the Windsor Group for all your help and support. My daughter is turning 1 and we are still breastfeeding thanks to her!" - Windsor, ON
  • "Thank you La Leche League for being there for me and my daughters as we breastfed our children." - Lunenburg County, NS


To all of our volunteers, the work that you do to help mothers, parents, and babies breastfeed and chest feed is so very much appreciated.

Thank you for being a part of La Leche League Canada with us.
