The Volunteer and Information Centre is recruiting potential volunteers of all ages that are willing to place their name on a volunteer roster, so that when an organization or event is seeking volunteers, the Volunteer and Information Centre can make a referral. Police Information Checks (Criminal Records Checks) are necessary and the Volunteer and Information Centre can make these available free of charge. Child Welfare Checks may be necessary if the volunteer position involves children. A volunteer screening process is also required and will be performed by the Volunteer and Information Centre Coordinator.
