How will this volunteer opportunity benefit you?
Our clients come to O&DIWG in their most vulnerable state - injured or disabled, often at risk of losing their livelihood, and without support. For those interested in a career in advocacy (law, social work, etc), this position provides valuable insight into the WSIB and appeal process that will be relevant to any advocacy career. This position also provides an opportunity to make a difference in disadvantaged communities.
How will the organization benefit?
