CPAWS Ottawa Valley is seeking to renew its Outreach and Engagement Committee with about 3 to 4 new members. The Committee meets face to face every 6 to 8 weeks and works by email between meetings. The focus of the committee's work has been the development and implementation of the organization's communications plan which is designed to raise the profile of the organization in the region and also develop strategies to help increase the number of supporters of the organization. This can include donors, but also social media followers, email subscribers (e-news and action alerts) and attendees at events. We are seeking people with experience in communications, engagement, social media and events to help renew this committee and help plan some events associated with the 50th anniversary of the organization in the summer and fall of 2019.

Committee members, while welcome and encouraged to support the delivery of the program, are not necessarily expected to play that role.

Apathy is Boring is a national, youth-led organization that works to support young people in taking charge of the conditions they live in. One way we do this is through our RISE program, where young people work together in a group to create and execute a community project in their city. It's an opportunity to build skills and grow social networks.

The theme for the next group of ambassadors will be the Environment. For us, environment is not just what's around you, but it’s understanding how these surroundings affect your life, well-being and overall health on a day-to-day basis. You will learn from locals doing similar work and explore ways that you can also participate in creating positive environmental change. You don’t need to be an expert in the topic already. You just have to be open to learning!

Currently, we are offering this program in the communities of Montreal, Edmonton, Ottawa, and Toronto.

Please read before you apply!

Many hands are required at mealtime and our Mealtime Helpers help things run smoothly. They help residents make their way to and from the dining room. They help those who want to don protective clothing. They pour water, tea and coffee. They remove dishes and help clean up after the meals. Meals are served at 8:30 am, 12:30 pm and 5:30 pm. Mealtime Helpers arrive 1/2 hour before the start of the meal and spend 1 ½ hours.

Dining should be a pleasurable activity. When some of our residents experience difficulty at meal time our Feeding Assistants lend a hand.

By their friendly presence they also make the meal restful and enjoyable. Feeding Assistants arrive when the meals are being served (8:30 am, 12:30 pm and 5:30 pm) and spend about one hour.

Recreational activities are many and for each, a number of dedicated volunteers are needed to remind residents of the activity, encourage participation and help residents get to the venue. If the event is one where refreshments are served, volunteers help serve and then collect dishes afterwards. At the end, the volunteers help residents return to their rooms. Recreation Assistants find this is a great way to get to know residents, staff and other volunteers in a fun setting.

Many residents would love to have a special friend to spend time with. Perhaps to go for a walk, play a game of scrabble, or just sit and chat over a cup of tea. So many of our residents have led rich and interesting lives and would love to share their memories with a friend. Friendly visitors are especially important for residents with no families or whose loved ones live far away.
