Volunteers

Volunteering – Your key to a world of opportunities!

What volunteer role best suits you?

Whatever your ability to contribute in terms of time and effort, volunteering with CAN-
TECH Law can help you expand your professional network, gain valuable skills, and
build your work experience!

Please note that you need to be a member in order to volunteer with CAN-TECH Law.

Step 1: Think about your goals and your circumstances

What are the goals you would like to achieve through your volunteering? Is it to increase
your network? To gain experience? To showcase or acquire skills? To give back to the
community?

All of these are great reasons to volunteer! Be realistic about the time you can put aside
to fulfil your volunteer assignment.

Step 2: Understand the various committees

The table below outlines what each CAN-TECH Law committee strives to do, the kind of
commitment volunteering calls for, and the main programs and roles associated with
them. We suggest you shortlist three committees that you would like to work with and
keep that in mind as you move on to Step 3.

Step 3: Send in your application

Submit your interest using the volunteer form below. If you have questions, you are
welcome to contact the contact@cantechlaw.ca.
