The RCMP Heritage Centre has a vibrant volunteer program thanks to many dedicated and committed volunteers. Through their efforts and commitment, we are continually enhancing the guest experiences at the RCMP Heritage Centre.
By volunteering, individuals and groups benefit in many ways including learning new skills, meeting visitors from around the world, learning about the critical role of the RCMP in Canada, building résumé and career-related experiences, and meeting new friends.
Current opportunities include:
Volunteers play a key role in the successful operation of the RCMP Heritage Centre gift shop. Working in this area, you will complement visitor’s experiences at the RCMP Heritage Centre by helping customers, performing light cleaning duties, and completing purchases.
A docent is someone who shares information with visitors about the RCMP Heritage Centre, its exhibits, and the RCMP historical collection. Docents also answer visitor questions and ensure that prohibited activities (such as eating in the exhibit gallery) do not occur. This opportunity is great for someone who likes to interact with a large number of people. In particular, current and retired members of the RCMP are always welcome, as visitors love to hear your stories and experiences.
Occasionally the RCMP Heritage Centre hosts large special events that require volunteer support. Duties may include event set-up and takedown, as well as greeting the public.
Each year, the RCMP Heritage Centre provides educational programming to thousands of young people. Volunteers are needed to help with organizing materials, working with school groups, and supporting our programming team.
Behind the RCMP Heritage Centre exists a team of people who are responsible for operations, marketing, fundraising, and programming. As a non-profit, we rely on volunteers to help us enhance these areas with their skills and time.
