Volunteer Process

Once we have determined you meet the volunteer requirements, we will schedule a volunteer interview to ensure you are a good fit for our program. If selected, you will be required to complete an RCMP security clearance. While waiting for your clearance, you will have the opportunity to complete the Solicitor General's training modules with support from our Volunteer Coordinator. 

 All Volunteers receive training in:

  • Family violence
  • Elder abuse
  • Sexual assault
  • Bereavement and grief
  • Trauma management
  • Trauma-informed practice
  • The Criminal Justice System

As part of a collaborative team and working within a client-centered program, all volunteers are supported in learning their new role within victim services. Once the initial training is complete, new volunteers will be assigned to a volunteer mentor for further development of their skills.
