March of Dimes Canada

Kendra Forrest

March of Dimes Canada’s mission is to maximize the independence, personal empowerment, and community participation of people with disabilities. Dedicated volunteers help March of Dimes Canada to become a national leader in the provision of programs and services for this growing community. Our vision is to create an inclusive society for everyone.

March of Dimes Canada offers a range of volunteer opportunities to get involved, no matter how much time you have, or the skills you are looking to share. We provide an engaging, flexible environment where volunteers are empowered and appreciated. Below are just a few of the opportunities we offer.

  • Hi, Tech! Volunteer.
    • In the time of COVID-19, the knowledge of digital technology is critical in helping people with disabilities to stay connected with their loved ones, and members of their community or participate in different activities. Hi,Tech! volunteers are matched with clients to provide them with remote assistance to solve their challenges with understanding, accessing, and using tech at a beginner level.

  • After Stroke Chapter, Member at Large.
    • After Stroke Chapters play an important role in supporting stroke survivors in communities across Canada. In the Chapters, stroke survivors will find a space for learning about recovery, gathering resources, and socializing with other people in similar situations who share common experiences. Members at large support activities organized by the local chapter, attend meetings, and provide a welcoming environment for members.

  • Connect and Share Volunteer
    • The COVID-19 contingency is having a negative impact on the already high levels of social isolation that people with disabilities experience in their communities. Connect and Share volunteers will be matched with one of our participants (adults with disabilities, stroke survivors, and caregivers) for virtual social activities.
