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.
The team of volunteers at the hospitals, long-term care centres, CLSCs, mental health and addictions services, and other facilities of the CISSS de la Montérégie-Ouest is made up of hard-working, kind and open-minded individuals.
We are looking for volunteers to greet and direct users, provide support and listening services, and help with recreational activities, administrative work, music, carpentry, etc.
