Move Operations Manager (Volunteer Position)
Move Operations is the machine behind our organization. This team makes moves happen and ensure we serve as many survivors as possible. Since establishing the organization in July 2017, the team has moved 200 survivors, and we anticipate reaching 250 moves during this calendar year. We are scaling, to say the least!

This volunteer role includes oversight of Move Intake, Move Coordination, and Scheduling. There is a team of 3 supervisory roles representing each function, and this team reports up to the Move Operations Lead. The role is a case management/troubleshooting role and can be fast paced depending on the number of moves processed. There is also peer network that is rapidly growing (currently in Toronto, Vancouver & Halifax).We are looking for someone who is highly organized and with the capacity to think on their feet. Due to the nature of the work we do, plans can change during a move at a moments notice, and the Move Coordination supervisor will need to work with the incumbent to determine the best course of action on any situations that arise. The role is a virtual opportunity, and most communication with the team is online or by phone.

This is an oversight role with extended decision-making authority that we anticipate requiring 15 to 20 hours a week. We have active moves happening between 9 am and 9 pm 7 days a week, so some flexibility in availability by phone or email is necessary. The incumbent will be expected to participate in moves to get oriented and as needed. Extensive training provided.

Contact our volunteer recruitment team at volunteerottawa@sheltermovers.com to apply. Please provide an introduction letter outlining your interest and any relevant experience.

Established in 1976, the Multicultural History Society of Ontario has a dual mandate as steward of heritage resources and educator. It collects, preserves, and makes available significant, irreplaceable records documenting immigrant and ethnic experiences, and it undertakes educational programming illuminating our histories of migration and ethnicity.

The Society is the creator of the most extensive assemblage in Canada – and one of the largest in North America – of archival materials documenting immigrant and ethnic experiences. Over 70 ethnocultural and Indigenous communities and some 240 municipalities are represented in the MHSO’s archival holdings.

During the last few years, the MHSO has focused its efforts on the creation of a digital archive, the 'anchor' archive in its online repository Discovering Multicultural Canada. The digital archive will include digitized oral history interviews, ethnic newspapers, and historical photographs from the Society’s extensive archival holdings, augmented by contextual materials and reference information.

The MHSO is looking for dedicated individuals who are interested in the experiences of immigrants who came to Ontario both before and after the Second World War and who wish to support the establishment of the digital archive. Although the Society is located in Toronto, individuals living anywhere in the province can volunteer since resources and materials will be made available virtually.

Volunteer Opportunities

• Transcribing oral history interviews
• Transcribing non-English-language oral history interviews (many are in a variety of heritage languages) and translating these transcripts into English
• Editing transcripts
• Annotating transcripts
• Indexing oral history interviews
• Researching and writing biographical notes

Required Skills

We are seeking responsible, organized, enthusiastic individuals who can work well independently.

Time Commitment

Volunteers must be able to commit 4 hours per week towards the project. Since volunteers will be working from home rather than on-site, the exact days and times of volunteering are flexible.

How to Apply

Individuals interested in volunteering should send resumes outlining their skills and experience to the MHSO’s Outreach & Digital Archive Officer, Cassandra Tavukciyan, at cassandra.tavukciyan@mhso.ca .Providing an indication of what the individual can contribute to the project and the MHSO will also be helpful.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

The ByWard Market is one of the most well known destinations in Ottawa. Because of its economic and cultural contributions, the City of Ottawa plans to ensure that the Market remains a popular and successful destination in the future. The ByWard Market Public Realm Plan will establish a vision for improvements to the network of public spaces in the ByWard Market, including streets, sidewalks, parks, squares and plazas.

For more information, please visit the project website here: http://www.ottawa.ca/DesignByWard

We’re looking for friendly volunteers to help collect “people data” to better understand how residents and visitors get around and spend time in the ByWard Market. Each volunteer shift is two hours, plus a 30-minute training prior to the beginning of the first shift.

This is the third and final round of public life studies in the ByWard Market.

No previous experience is necessary. Interested volunteers can find out more details and sign up for shifts by copying and pasting this link into your browser:

Le marché By est l’une des destinations les plus connues d’Ottawa. En raison de l’importance de l’apport économique et culturel du marché, la Ville d’Ottawa met tout en œuvre pour qu’il demeure une destination populaire et qu’il continue à prospérer à l’avenir. Le Plan du domaine public du marché By permettra d’établir une vision des améliorations à apporter au réseau d’espaces publics du marché By, notamment les rues, les trottoirs, les parcs et les places publiques.

Nous sommes à la recherche de bénévoles sympathiques pour nous aider à recueillir des « données sur les personnes » afin d’être davantage au fait des allées et venues et de l’emploi du temps des résidents et des visiteurs qui se rendent au marché By. Chaque quart de bénévolat dure deux heures, auquel s’ajoute une séance de formation de 30 minutes avant le début du premier quart.

C'est le troisième et dernier tour d'études sur la vie publique.

We have over 300 people with disabilities in Ottawa who are feeling isolated and alone, wishing they had a volunteer friend and advocate through our organization. Most of them will have to wait two and a half years to be matched. Will you help one person to get off of our waiting list?

Being a volunteer advocate is convenient, flexible, and rewarding. We match people one-on-one, who live in locations convenient to each other, and with similar interests and shared activities. You spend time with your match, with the possibility of also including your family and friends. You get together three or four times a month at your convenience, and do what friends do: go for coffee, take a walk, or get out to an event. This can have a huge impact in the life of someone with a disability who is feeling isolated and alone.

As a volunteer you need to be over the age of 18 and make a minimum commitment of 12 months to this role [Note: your status in Canada may affect your ability to make this commitment e.g. visitor visa, student visa, refugee claimant]. Preparation and ongoing support are provided.

À Ottawa, plus de 300 personnes isolées à cause de leurs handicaps souhaiteraient être jumelées à travers notre organisation avec un ami et défenseur bénévole. La plupart attendront 2 ans et demi avant d’être jumelées. Aimeriez-vous aider une de ces personnes à être rayée de nos listes d’attente?

Si vous aimez passer du temps avec les gens et vous êtes disponible pendant une ou deux heures par semaine, nous vous invitons à communiquer avec nous. Un bénévole doit avoir 18 ans ou plus et être prêt à s’engager pour un jumelage de 12 mois [N.B : Votre statut au Canada peut affecter votre capacité à réaliser cet engagement, par exemple visa de visiteur, visa d'étudiant, demandeur de statut de réfugié]. L’encadrement et le soutien continu sont fournis aux bénévoles.

Vous pouvez avoir un profond impact dans la vie d’une personne ayant un handicap de plusieurs façons: en diminuant sa solitude, en l’aidant à réaliser ses rêves, en développant son réseau personnel, en diminuant sa vulnérabilité, en augmentant son estime de soi et en contribuant à améliorer sa santé physique et mentale.
