United Way volunteers are essential to the services and programs provided to the community.  Thousands of hours are volunteered to the work of United Way.  We are working together.  We are building better lives.  We are the United Way.

Current and ongoing volunteer opportunities with some of our Member Agencies:


Become a Vision Mate and be matched with someone with vision loss in your area to help them with everyday activities like running errands and going for a walk.

Imagine losing some or all of your vision. How would you tackle daily tasks such as reading your mail, organizing things around your home or buying groceries? Having someone to provide sighted assistance can make all the difference.

CNIB invites you to make a difference in the life of someone who is blind or partially sighted by volunteering just a couple hours a week.

Potential volunteers can contact Perpetua at 613-563-4021 ext. 5002 or via email at perpetua.quigley@cnib.ca
