Volunteer Opportunities

Why volunteer with us?

The key to Hope & Cope’s success is the presence of 500 volunteers, 90% of whom have either had cancer themselves or cared for someone diagnosed with the disease, or in some cases, have been both a patient and a caregiver.

These volunteers offer the wisdom of the lived experience, which enables them to truly understand the concerns of patients and their families. Seeing volunteers who have survived cancer and are doing well is a source of inspiration and hope to many patients.

We are always looking for new volunteers. If you are caring, non-judgmental, a good listener and a team player, bilingual (English/French) or multi-lingual, and are comfortable working with those who have cancer, we would like to hear from you.

Please contact us at 514 340-8255 or write to Hinda Goodman at hgoodman@jgh.mcgill.ca for more information.


Volunteer Management Council Charter

In response to an in-depth survey of Hope & Cope volunteers and subsequent consultations, in the fall of 2018, Hope & Cope introduced a new management structure called the Volunteer Management Council. Composed of volunteers representing a wide variety of areas within Hope & Cope and staff members, the Council will provide leadership and decision-making on volunteer-related issues and report directly to the Board.
