Help make a difference through volunteering

We could not be as effective as we are if it were not for the tremendous effort made by our volunteers. The Snowsuit Fund Depot operates with a skeleton crew of seasonal employees, plus one full-time general manager.

During the six months of the year in which our Depot is open to serve clients (September – February), volunteers of all ages and walks of life are required in order to help ensure the smooth operation of the snowsuit distribution process. Every season, we need over 750 volunteers putting in roughly 4,400 volunteer hours to help us out.

COVID UPDATE:  To ensure the health and safety of Depot staff, volunteers, and clients who visit, we are strictly adhering to provincial health and safety guidelines, including physical distancing, use of personal protective equipment, and increased sanitation.


Are you an individual who is able to commit some time to helping us at the Depot? If you are age 14 or over, we would love to have you join us! Students seeking volunteer hours are welcome. Please contact us at (613) 746-8719 to arrange for an interview.


Do you have a group interested in spending some time working at our Depot? We happily accept groups of up to 5 individuals per shift. Please check our calendar below to view availability of dates during our busy season. If you find something that suits, please register online. We have options for mornings or afternoons.
