Canadian citizens and immigrants are eligible to become ISSofBC volunteers. You must be willing to commit to a minimum of three months. Due to the nature of working with ISSofBC clients, a valid criminal record check for vulnerable populations will be required prior to volunteering. In addition, all applicants must attend an orientation session and additional training as needed. We ask for applicant’s patience as these strict selection criteria and processes can take time to complete.
