Why Volunteer With Us?


We're looking for people from all walks of life. People like you.

Volunteers make up more than 70% of the Canadian Red Cross. Whether you want to learn a new skill, meet new people, experience something meaningful, or simply help where help is needed, volunteer opportunities at the Canadian Red Cross are as diverse as people who fill them.

Randy Weekes was inspired to join the Red Cross after an ice storm left him without power for 17 days.

What We'll Provide You:

  • Training to do the tasks we ask you to perform
  • Access to learning modules to build and develop your skills
  • Orientation to the organization and your role
  • Lots of opportunity to get right into the action if you want or opportunities to work behind the scenes if you don’t want to be at the centre of the action

Skills You Can Develop:

  • Team work and collaboration skills
  • Communication and interpersonal skills
  • Problem solving and analytical skills
  • Organizational skills
  • Customer service and client service delivery skills

There's no better time than now to join the team of Canadian Red Cross Volunteers.

In an average year, we help more than 130,000 Canadians. Globally, we reach more than 6 million people. The number of people who need our help is big and growing. Our mission is simple: to prevent and alleviate human suffering wherever it may be found.

And to do that in communities across Canada, we need your help.

Regardless of where or how you volunteer, you're helping people in a time of crisis. I get a whole lot more out of it than what I put in.
