Volunteer With Us

We’d love to work with you
14% of Canadians have a disability.

According to Stats Canada, a large percentage of the population identifies as having a disability.

Whether you’re interested in volunteering with us directly or you would like our help in finding a volunteer position within the community, we look forward to hearing from you.

The Independent Living Resource Centre greatly values its volunteers. No matter what area you are working in, volunteers bring us valuable experience and skills. Our volunteers contribute to the overall atmosphere and culture of our centre, and for that we are very grateful.

If you are interested in volunteering with us, we will accommodate you as best we can.  Whether you are a student, a retiree, or a person with a disability, we will do our best to find a place for you. We will do what we can to ensure that you have a chance to use the skills you currently have or work toward building new ones.

If at any time you feel that volunteering with the ILRC does not meet your needs, if we cannot offer you the skill building you are looking for, or you feel you need a new challenge, we will do our best to find you an opportunity to volunteer outside of ILRC.

Volunteer in Your Community

Ranging from long-term commitments to a one-time event offering a wide range of experience and opportunity for personal growth, there are numerous volunteer opportunities available in our community.

If you are interested in volunteering, the Volunteer Coordinator will work with you to identify your goals, find an opportunity that is a good fit for you, and support you in communicating your needs as a volunteer. We will help you work past any fears, reservations, or barriers you may face in your volunteer experience. Breaking down these barriers will ensure that you can showcase the skills you have, learn new skills, and build relationships in the community with confidence.
