Being a member of RCM-SAR is one of the most rewarding volunteer roles there is. You will be part of a dedicated, professional team that is carrying on a proud 150-year tradition of volunteer lifeboats in British Columbia. By joining us, you will save lives.

Our volunteer program is designed to match your interests, skills, and availability. Positions range from active search and rescue crew to shore-based SAR prevention, maintenance, and fundraising roles.

Search and Rescue Crew


Being an active search and rescue crew member is an exciting, challenging and rewarding role. But is not for everyone.

You will be paged in the middle of the night and respond to emergencies in weather and sea conditions that most mariners avoid. You will be called on to navigate in fog and darkness, operate a rescue vessel in wind and waves, safely handle tow lines and other gear, use your first aid skills, follow orders, and give orders.

You will work in a dangerous environment. You will be coming to the aid of people who are frightened, confused, or injured. Some missions involve tragedy and death.
In other words you need to be skilled, brave, and tough.

But if you have the character and commitment, we will give you all the tools, training and support you need to succeed as a search and rescue crew member. The men and women who take on this task say the rewards of saving a life on the water are beyond measure.

  • Pleasure Craft Operators Certificate
  • Radio Operators Certificate
  • Marine Advanced First Aid
  • Small Vessel Operator Proficiency

The Vancouver Police Department values the many volunteers that give their time to make our crime prevention programs a success and our community a safer place to work and live. Volunteering is also a great introduction to the Department and to policing in general.

There are many ways you can get involved with your Vancouver Police Department and assist the VPD with its goal of making Vancouver the safest major city in Canada.

Block Watch
Block Watch is all about neighbours helping neighbours. Block Watch allows citizens to take an active role in preventing crime in their neighbourhood.
Citizens' Crime Watch

Citizens' Crime Watch (CCW) volunteers patrol the streets of Vancouver in teams in their own cars equipped with radios, calling in and reporting any suspicious or criminal activity to police. CCW volunteers act as extra sets of eyes and ears on the street for officers on patrol.
Speed Watch

Speed Watch volunteers monitor speeds through the city, including school and playground zones. They use portable radio equipment and electronic signboards to make drivers aware of how fast they're driving.
Community Policing Centres

The Vancouver Police Department has nine Community Policing Centres, largely comprised of volunteers. CPCs are a great way to get involved in your community.

We need volunteers in the following areas:

The Processing Center is a bee hive of activity. The center receives incoming donations, sorts them and hangs everything up on rolling rack that will be taken to the events. Volunteers are needed Monday to Friday from 9:00am to 9:00pm. Help out for an hour or for the entire day….there is great flexibility on the days and times available. For scheduling reasons we ask for 7 days notice when you are able to come in. We may also have a call out when there is a large amount to process. We welcome groups. Note: Volunteers at this location are required to successfully complete a FREE criminal record check if you are volunteering between the hours of 9:00am-5:00pm.

There are over 112 events planned for this year. Event days are exciting, rewarding and very busy. Many hands make light work. On those days we need your help with:
  • Setting up and unloading (everything is on wheels…so no heavy lifting)
  • Greeting families as they arrive
  • Registration and check in
  • Helping families “shop” for clothes
  • Checking out and re-bagging items to take home
  • Food Service – coffee/tea and or food depending on the event
  • Clean up and load up
  • Unloading at the processing center

The events locations, dates, and times vary but most events are booked several weeks/months in advance and they are approximately 4 hours in duration from setup to clean-up.

For more information on joining one of our teams contact us at or visit

​The mandate of BC Cancer Agency Volunteer Services is to enhance the mission of the BC Cancer Agency and the experience of patients, family and friends during their cancer journey.

Many of us know the cancer journey, personally or by way of a loved one. It is not an easy road to travel; even harder without caring support. You can make a difference to someone traveling that road by volunteering with the BC Cancer Agency.

Whether you have been affected by cancer or just want to be involved in your community we welcome your application. Volunteers are a part of the multi-disciplinary team and play a vital role in the provision of high quality care and support to our patients, their family members, and staff.

The BC Cancer Agency Vancouver Centre is a diagnostic and treatment centre for Lower Mainland cancer patients. Volunteer Services plays a vital role in providing high quality care and support for our patients and their families, and the purpose of our screening steps is to create and maintain a safe environment for both the Centre community and the volunteer, as well as ensure an appropriate match between volunteer and the task.

There are no educational prerequisites but we do know that compassionate, empathetic, non-judgmental individuals match our patients’ needs well. Those of you interested in applying who come with a background as a health professional please note that as a volunteer there are boundaries to your role and you will not be able to practice your professional skills.

Volunteer opportunities in the Vancouver Centre exist Monday to Friday, between 8:00 AM and 4:30 PM. We expect volunteers to commit to one 4 hour shift per week with preference given to those able to make a one year commitment. We DO NOT have volunteer opportunities for evenings or weekends.

NOTE: The BC Cancer Agency DOES NOT operate the volunteer driver program, it is run by the Canadian Cancer Society and Freemasons. If you wish to be a volunteer driver please contact the CCS office as noted below in the Grey box.
