Abstract. This paper examines the leadership traits and qualities of volunteer administrators in Canada. The demographic variables of Canadian volunteer administrators including age, gender, and education were compared to other North American leaders using the Posner and Kouzes' (1988) Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI). Organizational variables of non-profit agencies also were investigated to determine organizational effectiveness of leadership. Results indicated that volunteer administrators belonging to the Association for Volunteer Administration (AVA) exhibit a significant behaviour pattern to practice the actions likely to foster effective leadership related to volunteer management.
