National COVID-19 Volunteer Recruitment Campaign - We need you!

The Government of Canada is working with provincial and territorial governments to respond to COVID-19. We are seeking volunteers to help in the following areas:

1. Case tracking and contact tracing;
2. Health system surge capacity;
3. Case data collection and reporting.

We are building an inventory of volunteers from which provincial and territorial governments can draw upon as needed. We welcome ALL volunteers as we are looking for a wide variety of experiences and expertise. Please note that we have included a list of Yes/No questions that you will be asked to answer to so we can better match the volunteer work to be assigned.

Should you be interested in volunteering, here is some key information for you:
• Most of the work can and will be performed remotely from your home;
• Hours of work are flexible and schedules will be established based on needs and availabilities provided.

We thank you in advance for helping protect the health of Canadians.

NOTE: Some jurisdictions have already asked for applications to cover surge capacity. If you have already applied directly to a call-out from your province, please do not apply to this national process. This will help to cut down on processing applications more than once.
