Ottawa is a destination for conferences, meetings, and events — many of which require local volunteers.

Volunteer Ottawa is now offering an Event Pass that comes with 4 months of access to including unlimited volunteer recruitment postings, social media promotion, and all our web tools. This new Event Pass is ideal for charities and non-profits who are not eligible for regular Volunteer Ottawa membership.

About the Event Pass

The Event Pass is designed for charities, non-profits, and community organizations that don’t normally operate in Ottawa but will need Ottawa-area volunteers for a special event, conference, or festival. Please note that for-profit events and organizations are not eligible for this pass. 

What’s Included

The Event Access Pass comes with a temporary member account on with 4 months of access. During that period, you will get:

  • Unlimited posting of volunteer opportunities on Ottawa’s #1 most-searched volunteer website for 4 months
  • Access to tools like: 
    • Volunteer Search – filter our entire database of 10,000 volunteers for specific skills and interests 
    • Volunteer Export – export a CSV or Excel file of all applicants to your postings 
    • Member Page – share all your active volunteer opportunities with one link to your Member Page 
    • Community Calendar – add your event to VO’s community calendar for increased visibility 
  • 4 promotions on VO social media for your volunteer opportunities, once they have been posted
  • Technical support for our website and web tools as required 
  • Account data is stored even after your membership is over, making it easy to re-activate the next time you’re hosting an event in Ottawa

What’s Not Included

  • Volunteer screening
  • Event promotion (outside of included social media posts) 
  • Member pricing for workshops 
  • Voting rights at annual VO AGM


In order to be eligible for the Event Pass, your organization should meet these guidelines: 

  • Be a registered non-profit or charity

Your organization will be expected to follow the same rules and guidelines as every Volunteer Ottawa member. Read more about our Membership Agreement here.
