St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre (SJCCC) is always looking for new volunteers to join our team! Our group of dedicated volunteers ensures that our residents and patients are fully supported by complementing the services provided by staff. Volunteers play a key role in helping us remind residents and patients that they are part of a larger community that cares. Whether you are interested in personal growth, new friendships, or completing volunteer hours for school, SJCCC might be right for you.

Volunteer Opportunities

We offer a flexible schedule adapted to your specific work and family life. There are many different ways to offer a hand as a volunteer including:

  • Assisting at meal times
  • Assisting with recreational activities and events
  • Portering residents to recreational and spiritual care activities, meals, and physical therapy
  • Becoming a Board Member
  • Joining the RHSJ Health Centre Fund and assisting with fundraising events 

Youth Volunteers

Community involvement is a high school requirement, and SJCCC offers a fun and rewarding way to earn those hours. By volunteering with us, you will be able to make a difference in your community, while gaining excellent work experience and developing leadership qualities.

Student volunteers can work any time throughout the year, but we also offer a summer program that can fulfill your hours’ requirement quickly!

How to Become a Volunteer

It’s easy! 

Email our Volunteer Coordinator at [email protected] to let them know you are interested. They will contact you with a link for the application and let you know the next steps and current opportunities available. 

*After your application is reviewed, you will be contacted for an interview; this process allows both parties to discuss the expectations of volunteering.

*Before you begin volunteering, we require a current Canadian Police Information Centre (C.P.I.C.) check and a Two-step Mantoux test for Tuberculosis. You must also attend a volunteer orientation session before volunteering. These requirements will be discussed in more detail during the initial interview, and St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre will reimburse you for the cost of your police check.
Please note: Youth volunteers under 18 years do not require a police check.
