Programs & Events

Volunteer Income Tax Program

We train volunteers to prepare taxes with Canada Revenue training. This is a no fee income tax preparation service for clients who qualify. To volunteer your skills or to see if you qualify to have your taxes completed, please call 780-865-6036.

Volunteer Police Information Checks (PICs)

This program relieves nonprofit groups of the cost of PICs for their volunteers. Volunteers are required to obtain a letter from their respective organizations stating that they are recruiting that person's volunteer services. The letter must be submitted to the RCMP along with a current driver's license with a Hinton address on it. PICs take up to 1 week to process and are free of charge. Volunteers must pick up their PIC in person and show their driver's license at that time.

Volunteer Screening Workshops

Information sessions are offered once a year to help organizations with the volunteer screening process. To find out when the next session is, please call 780-865-2670.
