Please note, recent events regarding COVID-19 have had an impact on our volunteer engagement program.

Because of the government's strong directive for physical distancing and the role that we play in our communities, the Society has made the difficult decision to discontinue all in-person activities for the time being, including many of our volunteer roles. This applies to our Minds in Motion®, support groups, administrative roles and other education opportunities. Effective as of Tuesday March 16, 2020, the aforementioned volunteer roles within the Society have been suspended until further notice.

Please see our active roles below. For all other roles, if you would like to complete an application, we will follow up when the programs re-opens. Thank you everyone for being a part of our team and we look forward to when our volunteer program can reopen!
