In an effort to eliminate the duplicate activities for volunteers and non-profit organizations, we are developing the Volunteer Passport program to avoid volunteers from having to be registered, screened and submit a Criminal Record and/or Vulnerable Sector check with every organization they want to volunteer with.

The Volunteer Passport program will enable volunteers to register with the Collingwood Volunteer Centre and complete the screening process once. They will receive a Volunteer Passport which will allow them to volunteer with all of the organizations participating in the Volunteer Passport program.

The screening process will be completed following the highest standards, and streamlines the volunteer process for both the volunteer and the organization.

For more information about the Volunteer Passport program, email our volunteer coordinator at, or dial 2-1-1 to speak with one of our community navigators.
