The Institute is committed to its volunteers to provide them with supervised and safe supervision, where everyone’s place is recognized. We are also committed to providing the necessary and relevant information for the accomplishment of the various tasks and to support you in carrying them out.
In return, the volunteer agrees to act with courtesy and honesty. He respects the confidentiality of information transmitted to him and promotes communication conducive to teamwork.

The majority of our fundraising events are carried out with the invaluable help of our organizing committees. In fact, accompanied by our events coordinator, each organizing committee helps to make the fundraising a reality through its involvement, where everyone shares their expertise, their skills, their creativity, their know-how, their network and this, to the extent of its capabilities.

Discover our volunteers and their testimonials
“As a student in biomedical sciences at the Université de Montréal, I had the chance to learn a lot about the health system and biomedical research. Indeed, I was able to understand the important role played by the organizations which financially support the researchers and their research teams which make considerable efforts in order to find a cure for the various types of cancer.
In the last few months, I have found myself with a little more time because of the COVID-19 pandemic. So, I decided to get involved and offer my services to organizations that are in need of casual staff. By getting involved with the Institut du cancer de Montréal, I was able to discover the importance of organizational structures that manage fundraising for the benefit of patients and research in order to stem cancer disease. I am very impressed by the number of collaborators from different backgrounds who unite their efforts for this same cause.
Volunteering is always a rewarding and enriching experience, and I am very grateful that the Institute gives me the opportunity to be part of their team of volunteers. I hope I have the chance to continue to help this important cause. ”
“Being a volunteer is an obligatory part of my work for me because the money raised during all the events organized by the Institut du cancer de Montréal helps us to do very high-level research (purchase of cutting-edge technology devices, etc.) in order to defeat cancer. “
“When I started my graduate studies at CRCHUM, I also joined the Institut du cancer de Montréal. This made me discover the need for me to get involved as a volunteer at the Institute’s fundraising events. These events are essential for funding research projects. In addition, it is very stimulating to be part of the Institute community, because my meetings with donors and patients allow me to identify how my research can greatly improve their quality of life. Being a volunteer at the Institut du cancer de Montréal is also another asset in beating cancer! “
