Volunteer at regional centres, lodges and hospitals

If you’re looking for an opportunity to provide comfort and support to people with cancer and their families while they receive treatment, consider volunteering in a regional centre, lodge or local hospital.

Your role may include helping people receiving cancer treatment find their way around, helping them prepare for appointments and providing comfort while they’re waiting for or receiving treatment. You may also share information about the Canadian Cancer Society and other support services they may want to connect with in their community. Together, we create a unique environment that focuses on the needs of people living with cancer.



Parker Murchison My favourite thing about Camp Goodtime is being able to hang out with other kids who have survived cancer. They know what is going on in your life and can help you get through it.
