Covid-19 Update - April 3, 2021
Thank you to everyone who continues to support Mackenzie Health with their volunteer applications. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we have limited the number of volunteer placements at both Mackenzie Richmond Hill and Cortellucci Vaughan Hospitals. As a result of limited placements, we are now full through August 2021.
Please visit this website again in early August for program updates. We anticipate opening more placement opportunities at that time, subject to the course of Covid-19 case counts. Until then, please stay safe and practice proper infection control measures.
When assessing applications, we first narrow the field to complete and accurate applications that offer a glimpse of the volunteers personality and highlight what qualities the applicant would bring to the patient experience. Then, we look for applicants whose experience, interest and availability matches our current vacancies.
For Student Volunteers, we look for students that are able to manage the application process on their own as well as manage their own schedule. Part of demonstrating this maturity is communicating on your own behalf whether by phone, email or in-person. We do not discuss applications, interviews or placements with anyone other than the applicant. For parents or guardians wishing more information about a applicant's progress, we ask that you speak with the applicant as we are not able to provide you with that information.
When preparing an application, please consider your ability to fully commit to the program and the patients at Mackenzie Health. We enforce a very high standard for attendance and punctuality. Volunteers in this program must be able to maintain their commitment to their volunteer placement even during periods of heavy school workload and exams. For more information, please refer to our FAQ section at www.mackenziehealth.ca.
Mackenzie Health is an inclusive and equal opportunity employer committed to providing accommodations for applicants upon request at any stage of the recruitment process in accordance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) and the Ontario Human Rights Code. Please let us know how we can be of assistance.
