"The ten best practices discussed in this guide were adapted from the ten organizational standards set out in the Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement, with some modifications. The modifications were made so that the best practices would be user-friendly, accessible, and relevant to small rural nonprofit organizations with few, or no, staff. Modifications to the organizational standards in the Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement were based on the experience of the Yukon Volunteer Bureau and the six Yukon volunteer groups involved in the project. Modifications were also based on expertise in writing plain and accessible public information materials."
