What is Leisure Buddies? Leisure Buddies is about creating friendships between people who may not otherwise have had the chance to meet. Contact between individuals in the community and persons with developmental disabilities seldom occurs spontaneously. The Leisure Buddy program facilitates friendships by pairing individuals in one-to-one relationships. A Leisure Buddy friendship helps to break down barriers to inclusion and provides opportunities for shared experience, laughter and support. What is an intellectual disability? A developmental disability, also referred to as an intellectual disability, is a term used to describe any condition that includes a lifelong impairment to a person's ability to learn or to adapt to their environment. People with a developmental disability do not necessarily have a recognizable condition. Some examples of diagnosed conditions are autism, Down Syndrome and Williams Syndrome. The degree of disability varies greatly from person to person. Developmental disabilities may or may not be accompanied by physical disabilities. Most individuals live in a group home or on their own with support and may have limited contact with the larger community. The Leisure Buddy program provides a safe and caring way for our individuals to become more independent, and to enjoy the benefits of a special friendship which extends beyond their family members and paid care providers. What type of commitment do I need to make to be a Leisure Buddy Companion? The most important part of the Leisure Buddy program is friendship. Buddies make contact with each other once a week by telephone. It is expected that one-to-one outings will happen twice per month.
Location: This varies depending on who your are matched with.

Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society - Ottawa Valley is looking for outreach volunteers to attend events to inform the public about who we are, what we are doing and to promote our major campaigns such as our Make it a real park campaign.

The role of volunteers would be to attend events or canvass at events across the Ottawa Valley area. Some events we will be going to is Marché Vieux Aylmer and other outdoor and indoor events. We will provide you with information about our organization, our campaigns, give you tools to draw people in like our games or crafts for kids. Generally speaking this position does not involve fundraising, although we try to encourage visitors to our information booths to consider supporting the organization by becoming a member.

Our Make it a real park campaign is to achieve legislated protection for Gatineau Park equivalent to a national park, with boundaries protected by law. Gatineau Park's 361 square kilometers are home to 118 rare or endangered species and 50 lakes. Connections of natural areas are essential to the movement of species, and therefore the health of the park. Roads and development threaten this connectivity in the absence of legislative protection.

Most of Gatineau Park belongs to the federal government and the National Capital Commission (NCC) manages the land, but it does not have the permanent legal protection provide to "real" national parks. Without legal protection portions of the park will continue to be subject to use for new roads, housing development and shopping centers.

This position would be great for people wanted to volunteer but wanted to learn more about the organization first.

A knowledge of local environmental issues and the ability to communicate orally in French would be considered assets for this position, but not absolute requirements.

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.

Organization: Connecting Ottawa
Looking for Volunteer Facilitators with diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds to help bridge the gap that can exist between the point of referral and the point of legal services delivery for persons who have a significant communication difficulty -- largely new Canadians and those with disabilities. The role involves
• Reaching out to our scommunity partner and their client who has been referred to a legal or social service but who may not be able to access the service without the support of a Facilitator.
• Solving problems that may prevent the person from actually connecting with the service; for example, navigation, transportation, explanation of the services sought, etc.
• Assisting persons to communicate their issue and their need for service to the service provider. The Facilitator’s ability to speak the language of the person is essential. Note, however, that the role does not include interpretation; the communication of legal terminology and advice is best provided via a certified Professional Language Interpreter.
• Connecting with and promoting the Connecting Ottawa program among target populations
