Volunteer for the Canadian Arts Coalition

You may know that the Canadian Arts Coalition is operated by a small number of dedicated volunteers.

With the election fast approaching, if we are going to make sure the arts are on the mind of candidates across the country, we’re going to need your help.

We’re looking to “staff up” and fill a number of volunteer positions. If this interests you, please take a look below and let us know where you are able to pitch in. If you see a position and know someone who would be perfect for it, let us know that too!

Any one volunteer may take on more than one position if they like. Many tasks are interrelated and will require coordination with other volunteers.

For some tasks, we are in particular need of francophone or bilingual volunteers.

Please fill in a volunteer form [1] to indicate what your areas of interest. You can also contact us [2] for more information.
