News & Updates for Volunteers
Check back regularly for the latest information!
Check out Your Volunteer Pocket Guide online!
Click on “Your Resources” under the Volunteers Section to view the Pocket Guide and other information that will enhance your Games volunteer experience. There is important information in the Pocket Guide to help you prepare for the Games. To make these Games as “green” as possible, we’re only printing a limited number of copies. You can download the Guide at your leisure.
Assignment and Scheduling have begun!
Volunteers must be approved before assignment can happen. That means registered AND clear police screening received. The RCMP are currently processing hundreds of screening requests so your patience is requested. Each Division is doing scheduling at their own pace, so don’t panic if your friends hear something before you do. Watch your emails for messages from GEMS.pro – and make sure to check your Junk folder in case the emails ended up in there.
General Orientation for Volunteers
In February, you will be receiving an email which will invite you to choose ONE Orientation Session to attend. These are mandatory and will take approximately 1 hour of your time. At your session, you will receive general Games information, picking up your accreditation badge, uniform, pin and invitation to post-games thank you events. The dates sessions will be offered are Feb. 28 29, and March 1, 6, 7, and 8. All sessions will be held in the Flexihall at the Canada Games Centre.
