Help us sell daffodil pins, knock on doors to collect donations or just ask personal contacts to make a donation. Volunteering is easy and fun, plus it will make a big difference in the lives of people living with cancer right here in Ottawa.

Volunteering is a great opportunity for you to make a positive impact in your community, meet new people, be part of a dynamic team and learn new skills. If you’re interested in volunteering for the Canadian Cancer Society contact your local Society office at 613-723-1744 or go to cancer.ca.
