Volunteers have been a part of our community since we began, 35 years ago. Last year we had more than 920 people spend their time volunteering both at our Centre and in the wider community supporting our seniors. Volunteers are also involved in helping us plan our services and advising us of the support they need through our Volunteer Advisory Committee.
Our volunteers are valued members of the team and help in everything from accompanying seniors on day trips, to visiting people at home, providing office support, helping with fundraising and leading recreational activities. We welcome volunteers with developmental disabilities, those who have skills they'd like to share, people who are retired and want to give back, students and newcomers to Canada who are looking for job experience and those who just want to help transform lives. Everyone here belongs!
Because of our unique approach to including volunteers in all we do, in 2012 SPLC received the June Callwood Outstanding Achievement Award for Voluntarism from the Minister of Immigration and Citizenship, the Honorable Charles Sousa. If you'd like to support your local community and help transform lives, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator by calling 416 493-3333 or firstname.lastname@example.org
