Volunteer at a Society office

Community offices are at the heart of planning and implementing Society fundraising activities, delivering services, promoting healthy public policies and educating the public about cancer and prevention. Society offices support community work by delivering programs and support materials and engaging in advocacy work with the government.

Office volunteers play a vital role in the day-to-day support of community office teams. Volunteers often work on a regular basis and provide assistance with data entry, filing, photocopying and posting mail. Additional tasks can include processing donations, preparing receipts, greeting the public, answering phones, providing information and pitching in with events and projects.

To volunteer at one of our community offices in Alberta or the Northwest Territories, please apply one of the following two ways:

  1. Complete and submit our online application form.
  2. Print and complete the PDF application form and submit to your local Canadian Cancer Society office.

Your volunteer application will be reviewed and you will be contacted shortly by one of our Volunteer Engagement coordinators. Please note that if you are under 18 years of age, you must obtain parental consent.
