In 2005, Volunteer Canada and The Home Depot Canada joined forces to form the Corporate Council on Volunteering (CCOV), the first of its kind in Canada. The CCOV is made up of 20 Canadian corporate leaders dedicated to helping lead the volunteer movement in Canada.

Throughout 2006, The Home Depot Canada is committed to volunteering 60,000 hours to community projects, 18,000 of which will be contributed during its Month of Service in September. The Home Depot associates who volunteer their time at community projects during the Month of Service and throughout the year are part of Team Depot, a store-based volunteer program encouraging and enabling associates to give back to their communities. The program was established in 1992 to help meet the needs of communities where associates live and work.
