Come Join our Team!!
Alberta Health Services (AHS) has over 14,500 dedicated volunteers helping
to meet the mission, values and strategies of AHS. But we are always growing
and continually looking for those wanting to share their time and skills.
To us, volunteers are more than numbers. Volunteers support so many areas
of AHS’s work – in our facilities, at our planning tables and in our
communities. Volunteers are in our acute care hospitals, in our rehabilitation hospitals, in our home
care programs, in cancer care, in mental health and addictions, in pediatric
care, in continuing care and in public health programs.
All of our volunteer roles share a commitment to improving the quality of
the patient and family experience.
who help guide patients and families around our busy facilities,
visitors who spend time with our socially isolated patients,
- patient and
family advisors who provide input and direction to AHS on numerous
- supporters of
our volunteer retail operations - where the proceeds are returned to AHS
to provide patient care and comfort.
If you are interested in volunteering with AHS, please scroll through the list of sites on the right hand side. There
is contact information and / or a link to our online volunteer application portal on each site’s page.
Volunteer Resources (VR) will review your volunteer application.
If there are any openings, VR may contact you to set up a meeting. You will
meet with VR to talk about your skills, interests, and availability, as well as
learn about location guidelines. Based on this meeting, a volunteer role that
works for us both is arranged.
As part of our program, AHS requires that a security check be completed
prior to placement. This can take several weeks. Baseline health screening may
also be required for those volunteers in patient care locations. All volunteers
will be given an organization, facility and a department-specific orientation,
when they begin their placement. All volunteers with AHS are asked to sign a confidentiality agreement to protect those in our care.
