Volunteering at CHEO

Words from our CEO:

As someone who grew up here in Ottawa, I have known and admired CHEO as an organization that is driven by people with compassion, incredible depth in skills, and a deep commitment to caring about children and their families. 

CHEO was founded by the dedication of volunteers, and to this day, our volunteers continue to be a solid foundation allowing us to provide excellent patient care to children and youth in the community. 

Every day our team of passionate staff, physicians, and volunteers make it possible for kids to get healthy, stay healthy and thrive.

As a CHEO volunteer, you are an ambassador for the hospital and your interactions with kids and families shape how people feel about the institution. It is volunteers like you who help give CHEO the great community reputation we pride ourselves on. Every volunteer role at CHEO is valued by staff and the patients. You help us help the kids of this community.
