Description

The Office of Protocol is currently recruiting volunteers for the Mayor’s Annual Christmas celebration taking place at Ottawa City Hall from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 9th, 2023. 

We are asking volunteers to arrive no later than 1:00 p.m. to sign-in, get a briefing on how the event will unfold, have a bite to eat and get into position.  A light lunch will be provided to volunteers before the event – a vegetarian option will be available.  Please be prepared to volunteer until approximately 6:30 p.m. given we will need help after the event to assist with clean up.  These positions will be outside so please dress warm.

All volunteers under the age of 18 require the signature of their parent / guardian.
Parent/Guardian Consent form can be downloaded from our online application. 

In compliance with Ontario law, all volunteers must have completed their AODA training to volunteer for an event.  If you have not already completed this training, you can do so online at: https://ottawa.ca/en/accessibility-training 

Further details and positions will be provided to volunteers prior to the event. Thank you and please do not hesitate to contact [email protected] if you have any questions.

Le Bureau du protocole recrute actuellement des bénévoles pour la Fête de Noël du maire, qui se tiendra à l’hôtel de ville d’Ottawa le samedi 9 décembre de 14 h à 17 h. 

Nous demandons aux bénévoles d’arriver au plus tard à 13 h pour s’inscrire et assister à une réunion d’information sur le déroulement de l’événement, et manger quelque chose avant de se rendre à leur poste. Un repas léger leur sera servi avant la fête (une option végétarienne sera offerte). Les bénévoles doivent être disposés à travailler jusqu’à 18 h 30 environ puisque nous aurons besoin d’aide après la fête pour tout nettoyer. Le travail se fera à l’extérieur : veuillez vous habiller chaudement.

Tous les bénévoles de moins de 18 ans doivent avoir l’autorisation écrite de leur parent ou tuteur.

Vous pouvez télécharger en ligne le formulaire de consentement des parents ou du tuteur.

Conformément à la loi ontarienne, toutes les personnes qui désirent faire du bénévolat lors d’un événement doivent avoir suivi une formation sur la LAPHO. Si vous n’avez pas encore suivi cette formation, vous pouvez le faire en ligne : https://ottawa.ca/fr/formation-sur-laccessibilite.

De plus amples renseignements suivront, et d’autres postes seront ouverts. Je vous remercie. N’hésitez pas à communiquer avec moi à [email protected] si vous avez des questions.
