Northern Health Volunteers

Our volunteers make a difference to our patients, clients, residents and their families every day. They bring a variety of skills, experience, and backgrounds to support  communities all across Northern BC. 


We have limited volunteer positions. Our greatest need is within elder care, especially for entertainers and activity volunteers in our care homes.

Most of our opportunities require weekday availability between 9am and 4pm.

  • Apply here if you're an entertainer or performance group (e.g. musician, church choir, or school group) who wishes to share their time and talents with Northern Health
  • Apply here if you're joining us through a partner organization (e.g. hospital auxiliary)
