Volunteer

Do you play an instrument or enjoy music? Do you like to read or play cards? Do you enjoy one-on-one chats? Are you interested in accompanying residents on outings, assisting with pastoral care in our chapel or providing comfort to palliative residents?

Saint Vincent’s is fortunate to have a team of over 60 individuals and community groups who volunteer in many areas. We also partner with local educational institutions welcoming high school and post-secondary students who are completing volunteer credits or just interested in being involved in their community.

Volunteering at Saint Vincent’s can help you gain job-related skills, improve your resume, meet great people, make a difference in the life of a resident and much more! We will match your skills and interests to find the best fit.
