In response to the current aims of resettling Syrian refugees in the Peterborough area, we are building volunteer support groups.  Please head to the Refugee Resettlement Support page if you are interested in being involved in this capacity.

We could not operate nor reach our goals without the generous help of our volunteers. Some benefits of volunteering with us include:

  • Sharing and making a difference
  • Gaining knowledge and learning new skills
  • Volunteer recognition events and training opportunities
  • Free admission to a number of events and activities
  • Making connections and learning about other cultures

Here are some of the general volunteering possibilities:

For more information about volunteering at the New Canadians Centre, please contact the receptionist in Peterborough or the office in Cobourg.

On occasion, we may be able to offer honoraria for specific volunteer tasks.  In these instances, all current volunteers who meet the determined eligibility requirements will be notified of the opportunity and will be informed of the guidelines by which individual volunteers will be chosen.

There are many other places to volunteer in the community. To start, try:
