Orientation & Training

Congratulations! You're now a Toronto MFRC Volunteer!!

The Centre wants to make sure that you are set up for success, so you will be taken through an orientation and training process that will ensure that you are comfortable with your role in the Centre's operations and ready to fulfill your assigned duties.
  • Detailed Tour of Facilities and Introduction to Centre Staff
All active volunteers will be given a detailed tour of the Centre, and introduced to the Centre's staff to ensure that they are comfortable navigating around the building, and have an understanding of who works where.
  • Military 101
All volunteers are encouraged to attend a Military 101 workshop to help them get familiar with the organization of the Canadian Armed Forces and some of the unique language that is used around the military community.  Volunteers who require this familiarization but cannot attend a workshop will have the opportunity to complete the learning through self-study.
  • Review of Volunteer Handbook and Centre Policies & Procedures
All volunteers will be required to review the Toronto MFRC's Volunteer Handbook and Policies & Procedures and will sign off on having done so.
  • Common Training
In addition to the Military 101 information, we will ensure that all volunteers have received orientation training on Health & Safety, Accessibility Standards, and the programs & services offered through the Centre.
  • Position specific training
Once all the common training is completed, volunteers will learn all about the specific role(s) in which they will be working.  The nature of this training can vary from position to position and, while there may be overlap at times, volunteers will receive training for each different position as they take tasks on.

As a critical part of the Centre's mission success, volunteers will train and work alongside staff members on a regular and ongoing basis.
