Volunteer With Us
The clinic relies on a robust volunteer program to support our staff team and the overall work of the clinic. We look for volunteers with a wide array of skills and experience, who hold values which align with those of the clinic. We strive to create an atmosphere for volunteerism that is accessible and inclusive, and we give preference to volunteers from within the Point Douglas neighbourhood who utilize the clinic’s services.
Mount Carmel Clinic follows a best practice model based on the social determinants of health. We work from a pro-choice, harm-reduction, trauma-informed lens that focuses on values such as self-determination and non-judgement.

Pen Pal Program
Due to an amazing response from the community, we have reached our maximum capacity for volunteer applications for the pen pal program. We will make an announcement if more volunteers are needed in the future - please follow us on social media for updates or check back soon!
Our pen pal program aims to connect volunteer pen pals with older adults to spread joy and connection, and help prevent senior social isolation and loneliness. For more information, please contact our Community Engagement Coordinator at (204) 589-9418.
