UOHI volunteerHeart Institute Volunteer Program

The University of Ottawa Heart Institute Volunteer Program has a robust history of service and compassion since 1976. Our volunteers continue to support the mission, vision and values of the organization, and play an important role in the exemplary care of our patients, families and visitors.

Volunteers support UOHI in the following areas:

  • Auxiliary Boutique
  • Clinical Units and Departments
  • Co-op placements
  • Events and Fundraisers
  • Patient Alumni Association
  • Reception and Information

Volunteers contribute on average, one 4-hour shift per week, and must meet several requirements upon acceptance to the program. These requirements are outlined in the Policies and Procedures of our application form. The Heart Institute volunteer program operates year-round.

Volunteers are valued members of our community, join our team today!
