If You Are a Survivor of Violence  

We have learned from volunteers who are survivors that it is important to have a clear understanding of how the violence has impacted one’s life. We also know that although violence impacts each person uniquely, lived experience can be valuable to support and understand where another survivor is in their journey.

Working in this environment can bring old memories forward and stir up many feelings. We ask, therefore, that volunteers who are survivors be at a place in their healing journey where they can cope with these memories and feelings.

Due to confidentiality and safety if you have accessed Anova services it is requested that you wait 2 years before applying and pursuing becoming a volunteer.


As part of Anova’s work against oppression, we strive to reflect the diversity of the communities we serve.  Volunteers who are, First Nations, Métis, Inuit, immigrant, refugee, 2sLGBQ+, from the Trans community, racialized communities, and those with varying abilities, are encouraged to apply.

Our Commitment to You:

At Anova we promise to provide a safe(r) space where you can use your skills and passions throughout your volunteer placement. We will ensure there is support and opportunity for learning and growth in your position. We commit to providing an experience that is mutually beneficial to both the organization and the volunteer. We promise to provide prompt response and action in any issues that impact the safety and security of volunteers

 As a volunteer you will become a community mobilizer helping us create safe(r) inclusive communities.
