Opportunities to Volunteer in Our Community


The following organizations have reached out to us looking for volunteers. Participating in the community as a volunteer is a wonderful way to get to know others and become known yourself.




VIU Elder College

Do you have a skill you want to share with others? VIU Elder College is seeking instructors who have a passion for sharing their knowledge with others. Instructors in all fields are welcome, and computer instructors are needed for the Spring 2022 session.

New students are also welcome, and tuition is free for Fall 2021.

Phone 250 821-1644





Spring’s the time to be cutting broom! And even while social distancing, volunteers are out doing their best to keep this invasive plant in check! Only for 3 weeks in May. Learn more about cutting broom here and if you’ve got even a bit of time, they’d like your help.


Mid Vancouver Island Habitat Enhancement Society

Love your new home?  Interested in becoming involved in outdoor activities that promote and protect our local environment? MVIHES is the Parksville streamkeepers group for you!

Many of our streamkeeper activities involve learning about our local streams and aquatic environments, through monitoring changes brought on by climate change and land development. Opportunities to restore habitats and educate kids about the wilds in our backyards make our volunteers a happy and dedicated group.  No experience necessary – learn as you go.

Contact:  To hear about the latest project that you could be working on, contact Barb (info@mvihes.bc.ca)  or Shelley (mvihes@mvihes.bc.ca).


Oceanside Ovarian Cancer Committee

The committee is fundraising for Ovarian Cancer Canada. The primary event is a bi-annual Luncheon. This year’s is on Sept 25th at Tigh Na Mara: The Lunch.  We are looking for volunteers to join the committee. There is usually only one meeting per month, and the next will be in Qualicum on Feb 9th.

If anyone would like to donate, participate or be a sponsor of the event contact Andrea. Even if volunteering is not something you can do, keep the Sept 25th event in mind for a lunch. The tickets will be $50, and are a tax deductible donation.
