Volunteering at Lakeridge Health is an exciting opportunity to join others who share a desire to contribute to the health care of our community. Volunteers are an essential part of the Lakeridge Health team and help to create a caring, collaborative, and compassionate environment across our hospitals, our long-term care home in Ajax, Lakeridge Gardens, and in our numerous community facilities, including our state-of-the-art Surgical Centre, the Jerry Coughlan Health & Wellness Centre.

At Lakeridge Health, we are dedicated to creating an environment that mirrors the diversity of Durham Region. We invite everyone in the community to join us in building a more diverse and inclusive group of volunteers to help shape a vibrant and inclusive community and support health-care in Durham Region. Learn more in our Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Accessibility, and Anti-Racism Multi-Year Action Plan.
