Volunteer at HCH

VOLUNTEERS ENHANCE OUR QUALITY OF LIFE

Volunteer Opportunities

Our team of volunteers make all the difference! They are a key component of our “Here to Care” priority, as they enhance the quality of life for our residents and tenants in very practical ways.

The opportunities for involvement are as vast and varied as our volunteers themselves. From face-to-face time with residents in one of our two Manors, to serving as a gardener, there are many worthwhile opportunities and every single volunteer makes a difference!

Our Team is committed to providing support for all volunteers and strives to grow and promote their talents and contributions. Currently, over 350 volunteers provide support and enhance the services in many areas of HCH.

How to Become a Volunteer

We would love to hear from you! Download the application here, and submit your form by email to Laurie at volunteer@hch.ca, or visit our Reception Desk in person to complete a volunteer application form.

As part of our normal process, all volunteer applicants are interviewed and screened, and provide a recent vulnerable sector police check and negative two-step tuberculosis test as part of that screening process.

You will be provided with a thorough orientation and role-specific training session, where you’ll learn about becoming part of the HCH Care Team, about the commitment we have in providing quality care and support to each of our residents, as well as each volunteer team member’s rights and responsibilities. Your involvement will be rewarding for those you meet, as well as for yourself!
