Central Zone - QEII Camp Hill Veterans Memorial

Every day, Nova Scotia Health volunteers make someone's day brighter in communities across Nova Scotia.


Who are our volunteers?


Nova Scotia Health volunteers are individuals looking for a rewarding opportunity to share not only their time, but also to provide meaningful support to patients, clients, residents, their families and our frontline staff through a variety of roles. Volunteers are a vital link in the important work of Nova Scotia Health.


Why volunteer with us?


Volunteers complement the care provided by professional staff. As a volunteer, you can gain personal satisfaction from helping others, obtain experience relevant to your future employment or educational plans, meet new people and learn more about the health care system. 


How much time do I need to commit?


As a general rule, we ask volunteers to commit to approximately two or three hours per week, on a regularly scheduled day, for a minimum of four months. The minimum volunteer commitment may be greater than four months depending on the site and the volunteer position of interest to you.

Available Opportunities

Therapy Dog Programs

Our Therapy Dog volunteers bring comfort, joy and a sense of companionship through pet visitation to patients and residents in our facilities. All Therapy Dog volunteer teams are required to be certified through the St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog Training Program. As a Therapy Dog volunteer, you can provide a wonderful break in what can be a stressful time for both patients and staff alike. If you and your dog are a certified St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog team, then this role is for you.

Meal Assistance

Our Veterans volunteer programs provide support to those who have tirelessly served our country at home and abroad. The meal assistance volunteer role can range from providing short one-to-one social interaction, meal set up to full meal assistance with a resident within our Veteran’s unit. If you are interested in giving back to those who have given so much to us, then one of these roles may be for you.
