North York General Hospital – Join our Volunteer Team!

North York General Hospital (NYGH), affiliated with the University of Toronto, is one of Canada’s leading community academic hospitals. We offer our diverse community a wide range of acute care, ambulatory and long-term care services across multiple sites. Through partnerships, collaboration, and academic endeavours, we seek to set new standards for people-centred care. Working together with our patients and their families, we are making a world of difference.


We provide an exceptional care experience for our patients and their families and have proudly served our diverse communities in North Toronto, and beyond, since 1968. Our staff, physicians and volunteers have a history of transforming health care to better serve our patients. We are leaders who adopt the most innovative health information technology, strategists who carefully chart patient flow and find ways to reduce wait times, and visionaries who dream of, and work towards, the ideal patient experience. From boardroom to bedside, we go above and beyond to offer the best and safest care. We put our people first in everything we do.


Across our sites, volunteer programming supports our patients, residents, and families. Volunteer Services is currently recruiting individuals. Current volunteer placements we are recruiting volunteers for:
