We are looking for passionate, enthusiastic, and committed volunteers! And our volunteer registration is now open – https://sportdurhamstaff.privitprofile.ca/index.jspa.

Volunteers are essential to the success of our Durham Region 2023 Ontario Parasport Games. Dedicated volunteers will help provide the best experience for participants and spectators during the Games weekend of February 3 to 5.

When you register, you can list the type of volunteer position and sport or service area (opening ceremony, registration, food, etc.) you are interested in. You can also share the skills and experience you have to offer, along with your availability.

As you would expect, these Games are committed to inclusion and accessibility. So, we’re looking for volunteers of all abilities. Please advise of any disabilities that may require accommodations we can support.

Mandatory training will be provided to all volunteers prior to the Games. You will also be provided with official Games apparel.

Our Games Volunteer Committee will review all registrations and begin offering positions closer to the Games weekend. They will do their best to offer you a position that best suits your skill set and areas of interest.
