  • 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.


Global Medic, an Etobicoke based Emergency Response charity, is continuing to assist in Canada’s COVID-19 response. We are packing Family Emergency Kits and Food Kits everyday for affected communities throughout Canada, this includes providing support for food banks and First Nations communities. We are looking to expand our volunteer list as the pandemic and its impact continues.

Given the current situation, there is a level of risk associated with attending these events and we understand that you may not want to participate at this time. We are taking steps to reduce the risk by enforcing social distancing, limiting events to smaller groups, enhancing disinfecting measures, and adding advanced screening protocols. All participants are required to wear a mask and gloves which will be provided. If you have your own masks and gloves please bring them. We are asking that volunteers do not car pool unless already living in the same household and avoid taking public transit.

We are currently operating out of a building located at 110 Carrier Dr., Etobicoke. If you are interested in volunteering, we have both morning shifts (9:00am to 12:30pm) and afternoon shifts (1:00pm to 4:30pm) available. If you wish to be contacted for these events, please fill out the form below. If you meet the screening criteria you will be contacted directly regarding volunteering at specific events. In order to limit large crowds, please only come to an event if you receive a confirmation email or message directly from us.

Thank you and we hope to see some of you in the coming weeks!
