Ways to volunteer

Your gift of time can make a difference

How volunteers strengthen our work

Volunteering for the Canadian Cancer Society has a real impact. Together with our donors, advocates, researchers and partners, you can volunteer to help improve the cancer experience for the nearly 1 in 2 Canadians who will receive a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime.

Not sure or don’t see your ideal role?

Our volunteer recruitment cycles change over the year based on when activities occur and when opportunities arise. We encourage you to sign up for updates to see available roles as they come. That way, you’ll be the first to know if that ideal role appears.

We also offer several other meaningful ways to support our mission outside of volunteering.
