Application Process & Deadlines - Summer Program 2017


Please read carefully as we have changed our process and deadlines from previous years.


Applications for both high school and post-secondary students will be accepted ONLY between March 1 and March 12, 2017. Applications received outside of this period will not be considered for the summer program. . A new online application format will be available on March 1st


The selection process will take place between March 13 and March 31, 2017. Status emails will be sent out between April 1 and April 7, 2017 along with screening forms and access to online education courses.


Successful candidates MUST attend an orientation between April 13 and April 17, 2017. Successful candidates will have until May 1, 2017 to submit all the appropriate screening forms in order to be guaranteed a summer placement. If screenings are received after May 1, 2017, we cannot guarantee that you will receive a placement.


Required screenings include:

  • Vulnerable Sector Check – volunteer’s cost $30
  • Health Screening (Tuberculosis screening, immunity screening for Measles, Mumps, Rubella and Varicella) – volunteer’s cost will vary based on their personal physician’s fee schedule
  • Completion of online education courses as assigned by Mackenzie Health

Successful candidates must provide a $30 refundable deposit for a uniform, photo ID badge and parking pass.

We thank you for your interest. Please note that we receive applications in excess of the placements we have available and regrettably are not able to offer all candidates a placement.. 


Please Note: If you are seeking a Co-op Program opportunity, please see your guidance department at school.
