    The Canadian Cancer Society is currently seeking volunteers from your university to join the campus Cancer Fighting Crew! Each university will have a crew that will work throughout the school year to plan fundraising events in support of the society and its mission to eradicate cancer and improve the lives of those living with cancer.

    The goal: For each campus to race to raise $10,000 before the end of the school year!

    The fun part: This can be done anyway you want! Use your interests, skill sets and hobbies to create a fundraising event for your peers, while working with a committee of people to help reach your goal.

    Apply Now!

    Please specify university under position applying for.

Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering with the Canadian Cancer Society!

We would love to engage you as a volunteer, and throughout the year we offer a number of exciting volunteer opportunities. All volunteer jobs will be posted here, so please check the website for updates, and let us know if you have any questions.
