While our volunteers fill important roles in our hospitals, they do not perform any type of direct patient care. You will not get experience in your field through volunteering.
There is no link between volunteering and our paid positions (this is a common misconception).
Thanks to the generous support of Standard Parking (who run our parking lots and garages), our volunteers do not pay for parking. Volunteers only pay a refundable deposit on a transponder (after receiving a hospital ID badge).
We ask all volunteers to commit to one shift per week, on a set day and at a set time. At your interview we will review our opportunities and work with you to match your availability. Most of our volunteer opportunities are during daytime hours on weekdays.
You can reach us by email or by calling 905.623.3331 ext. 1288.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us. We review all volunteer applications and contact those people who are selected for an upcoming general orientation session. Depending on the volume of applicants, it may take several weeks for us to get back to you.
Don't worry - our Coordinators of Volunteer Resources will help you through this process. It is much easier than it looks. To start, complete the registration form and send it to us. We will help guide you through the next steps.
Please contact our team and we would be happy to help you. You can reach us by email or by calling 905.623.3331 ext. 1288.
You can leave a message for our Student Champions by calling 905-576-8711 ext. 4301, and then selecting option 1. They will be happy to get in touch with you to speak about their own experiences and help you decide if this is the place you want to volunteer. Or you can check them out on Facebook.
