Volunteering for Town events and programs is a dynamic way to get involved and contribute to the community, develop new skills and meet new friends.
Volunteer program opportunities:
- Town of Blackfalds Board, Committee, and Commissions
- Blackfalds Health Professional Attraction & Retention Committee
For more information please email the Blackfalds FCSS Volunteer Programmer or phone 403.885.6360.
As part of the volunteer recruitment process, we require a Volunteer Application Form from each volunteer and a Criminal Record Check (for volunteers 18 years of age and older) be conducted as part of the screening process. Volunteers are required to reaffirm their interest in volunteering for events every 24 months.
