CISSS de la Montérégie-Ouest

Volunteers are the driving force that keeps an organization running smoothly. The enthusiasm, dedication and generosity they bring to their work on a daily basis contribute to improving quality of life for users.

Working alongside our care teams, our 700 volunteers play an important role in creating a compassionate, person-centred care experience. These men and women spend a total of more than 80,000 hours each year comforting, listening to, supporting and encouraging our users.
