Important updates related to COVID-19

During COVID-19, our general Volunteer program is suspended. Please check in once the COVID-19 emergency declarations end, as we truly do appreciate your desire to volunteer with us. However, we are still accepting applicants with business experience to be a Career Mentor — helping immigrants prepare for career success in Canada. For more information, click here.

 

General information

Volunteers at MOSAIC serve in many ways including facilitating English Conversation Circles, teaching yoga or art, caring for young children, providing informal language support, assisting with office tasks, and supporting our many events. They work with seniors, families, women and job seekers and more. Volunteers are in our classrooms, offices, workshops and in the community.

Thank you, volunteers!

With the amount of work our volunteers do, a ‘thank you’ does not quite seem enough. At MOSAIC, we have over 700 volunteers involved in every program and activity. Our volunteers enable us to deliver our programs and services, and directly impact and inform the work that we do for refugees and immigrants.
