Secondary Schools also require students to complete 40 hours of community service hours to successfully graduate.

The IOOF Seniors Homes Inc. welcomes continued affiliation with educational organizations to provide a community service and learning opportunity, field placement, co-op or internship for students and an enriching experience for the Residents.


Community involvement is a high school requirement. Volunteering at the IOOF Seniors Homes is is a rewarding way to earn your community service hours. Your time and talents will have a far-reaching effect on the community.


Volunteering with us offers you lots of opportunities – to build new friendships that you never knew were possible, to get a first-hand look at working in long-term care, to learn about leadership from people who have been leaders throughout their lives, and to walk into a room and make someone smile.

If you’re interested in working with seniors as a career choice, you can join nurses, medical staff, social workers, recreation staff, music therapists, and physiotherapists at work.

Time Commitment

As a volunteer, we ask you to make a minimum 40 hour per year commitment to the program — but you are welcome to volunteer for as long as you like after that, especially if you have developed a sense of connection with our Residents. Our Director of Program Support & Volunteer services is ready to meet with you and help you find a volunteer program that is right for you. We hope you can join us to share your talents, so that we can help you build new skills and strengthen the community.
