Volunteers are important to the success and growth of our clients and organization. Volunteering is an exciting way to connect with newcomers to our country and your community. We look to build on meaningful win-win relationships with our volunteers. Our focus for volunteers is based on Individualized Volunteer Development Plans. This means we discuss your needs and our needs and then we develop a plan that works for both, because your growth as a volunteer matters to us!

Contact Our Campbell River Manager of Volunteers at 250 830-0171, our Comox Valley Volunteer Coordinator at 250 338-6359, or stop by the office, or click on the link for more volunteer opportunities.
