Volunteers are the heart of the Atlantic Canada Chapter of the Sierra Club of Canada Foundation. As a grassroots organization, we have limited full-time staff and are unable to cover all of the issues facing Atlantic Canadians. It is our volunteers who primarily initiate new campaigns and keep the Chapter staff up-to-date on what is happening. There are also always opportunities to volunteer at our office in Halifax, or on campaign work from where you live. In order to commit to volunteering, begin by either printing and filling out a Volunteer Application Form, or by filling one out online.
If you like, you can also drop by our downtown Halifax offices - there's lots to do and we'd love your help!
We are located at 1649 Barrington St., 2nd Floor (The Hub) in Halifax, NS or call us at 902-444-3113.
