Ward volunteer call-out

You are here

Many of you have reached out in the past few days to let me know you'd be willing to volunteer in the ward. We don't know, yet, what those needs might be, but I'd like to now start capturing that interest in anticipation of future need. If you live in Kitchissippi ward and want to volunteer here, please fill out the form here. Thank you!

There is also the potential that the City may have a general call-out for volunteers as they mobilized for flooding. If and when that call is made, I'll be sure to pass that on!

Please note the following Ottawa Public Health guidelines for volunteering at this time:

Ottawa Public Health Volunteer Guidelines

If you are looking to support your community during this critical time, you can help by checking in with neighbours and friends who may be vulnerable, overwhelmed, lonely or in need of help. Please be mindful of social distancing recommendations given by Ottawa Public Health here to help lower your risk.
It is important to note that if you are volunteering, you could be exposed to the virus. Please make sure to monitor for symptoms, and when in doubt, please follow the guidance about self-isolation provided by Ottawa Public Health here.
Please do not volunteer if you have symptoms (fever, new onset of cough or difficulty breathing), if you have been in close contact with a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19 or if you have travelled anywhere outside of Canada, including the United States. In this case, it is recommended you self-isolate for 14 days.
