Volunteer at Brampton Civic Hospital

Before you apply, make sure that you understand the requirements of volunteering:

  • The minimum age to volunteer is 15 (at the time of application). 
  • There is a 60-hour minimum requirement for all volunteers, which takes approximately 6-8 months to complete.
  • A typical volunteer placement is two to four hours, once per week (example every Tuesday 8am to 12noon).
  • Due to the customer service nature of volunteering, volunteers must have excellent communication skills, including verbal and written English. Additional languages are an asset.
  • There are some areas of the hospital that do not offer volunteer opportunities, such as the pharmacy, laboratory, food services, security, housekeeping and medical office.
  • Job shadowing, observer ships or mentoring does not come under the scope of volunteering and is therefore not offered.
  • The Adult and University/College, and High School applications are available all year.
  • For those who are interested in volunteering in the summer only there is a Summer Program for University/College and High School students. 
    • UNIVERSITY/COLLEGE STUDENTS: Students must be available to volunteer from May 1st  to August 31st, for 2 fixed shifts daytime/weekdays only.  Deadline for applications March 15th each year.
    • HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS: Students must be available to volunteer from July 1st to August 31st, for 2 fixed shifts daytime/weekdays only.  Deadline for applications April 15th each year.
    • Regretfully, we will not be able to guarantee a placement for everyone and we will only be able to contact successful candidates.
    • The University Summer Volunteer Application will open Jan. 28, 2018 and close by end of day March 15, 2018.
    • The High School Summer Volunteer Application will open Feb. 28, 2018 and close by end of day April 15, 2018.
