Volunteer with Saanich Recreation

Welcome and thank you for your interest in sharing your talents and time with us!
Everyone benefits when you volunteer at our special events, programs and camps.

Saanich Mission: We aim to enhance the quality of life for citizens, visitors and future generations in the municipality and the region. We strive to live in harmony with each other and the environment and further Saanich citizens' economic, physical and social well-being.

We welcome your online application! Saanich Recreation is known for quality programming with volunteers playing a vital role in their support of our participants and programs.

While some roles involve certification, most offerings require only that applicants are 15 years of age or older, have an intermediate level of English as defined by the London School of English (https://www.londonschool.com/level-scale/) and pass a Police Information Check (free).

We offer short-term and long-term, daytime and evening, weekday and weekend volunteer opportunities at our four recreation centres, through our Community Services section, at various parks and our Saanich Municipal Hall. 

Youth volunteerism is on the rise at Saanich Recreation.  To find out how to engage your youth group or share your need for individual youth volunteer opportunities, contact Gaileen at 250-475-5502.
