  • WHEN

COVID-19 notes:

  • We have relaxed criteria for posting volunteer opportunities due to the urgent need for COVID-19 Response. Volunteers are responsible for confirming the legitimacy of the group or organization(s) they are working with. Never hand over money or confidential information to groups looking for volunteers.
  • Please confirm that the organization you want to volunteer with can ensure your safety.


VOLUNTEER RECRUITMENT UPDATE: We recognize that many people are eager to come forward and help others at this time. We thank you for your desire to help. CCS continues to need this support, especially given the people we serve are at an increased risk. We are also asking our clients, staff and volunteers to follow the preventative recommendations from public health officials.
At this time, in light of the importance of social distancing, we will not be actively recruiting, conducting face to face interviews or onboarding new volunteers. If you are interested in any position, we would be happy to arrange a phone/online chat to let you know more about who we are and the opportunities.
We continue to reassess daily and prepare for the possibility that we may need to change plans and programs to reflect most current recommendations. We will keep in touch with you to provide updates about how we are able to actively continue the important work of supporting the one in two Canadians who will experience cancer.
We are also encouraging Canadians to continue to show their support by visiting cancer.ca to discover a variety of ways to donate and support our critically-needed activities.

To speak with us about volunteering, please contact Sandy McDonald at smcdonald@ontario.cancer.ca or 519-249-0074 ext. 3163. Please leave a voice message, we will return your call as soon as possible.
