Welcome to the Catholic Centre for Immigrants Volunteer Portal!
CCI Ottawa has made the decision to resume Volunteer Program activities in an effort to provide necessary support to newcomers during this time.
During our current COVID-19 situation, our first priority remains the safety of everyone at CCI, and in the greater Ottawa community. We will continue to follow the advice of Public Health officials and will not support any face-to-face interactions between staff, volunteers and/or clients.
We recognize this is a time when newcomers may feel isolated and in need of extra support from the community. As a result, we are seeking volunteers to support newcomers in our programs remotely using a variety of methods. Regular and ongoing communication via technology is a positive way for individuals to help newcomers adjust to our current COVID-19 situation.
We also encourage current volunteers to contact their direct supervisors at CCI to discuss opportunities to support CCI programs and services remotely. We will make every effort to keep our valued team of volunteers up to date on any changes to the volunteer programs and services at CCI and will continue to post updates on our CCI Volunteer Page.
