VO is recruiting and deploying volunteers to respond to the volunteer needs specific to COVID-19 in Ottawa, Prescott-Russell, Lanark County and Renfrew County while ensuring proper screening and training protocals to safeguard the health of those volunteering and those they are assisting. Please see the intake portals for volunteers, for members, and for other agencies on our hompage. VO’s COVID 19 volunteer deployment program is supported by the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund and the Ottawa Community Foundation.
Almost all of Ottawa’s not-for-profit and charitable organizations rely on volunteers to fulfil their objectives. At any given time, Volunteer Ottawa has over 500 volunteer positions posted. There is a wide range of opportunities available - from short- term event support, to skills-based professional services, to working one-on-one with clients. Bear in mind that the most valuable skills you can bring to any volunteer effort are compassion, an open mind, a willingness to do whatever is needed, and a positive attitude.
