Volunteer with Us

Volunteers and volunteer leaders are the heart of the Ontario Chapter at Sierra Club Canada Foundation.

As a grassroots organization, we have limited full-time staff and are unable to cover all of the important issues facing Ontarians. It is our volunteers who primarily initiate and lead new campaigns, and keep the Chapter staff up-to-date on what is happening.


Featured opportunities
