Volunteer and Career


Volunteering at New Vista is an incredibly rewarding opportunity to make a meaningful impact within a vibrant and caring community.

Volunteers make a significant contribution to our community at New Vista Society, both in our Care Home and at our housing sites. Our volunteers enhance the services of our staff and add energy and fun to the lives of our residents, clients and tenants. Our volunteers come in a variety of ages, ethnicities and backgrounds and share a common concern for senior well-being. They are patient, caring, kind and enthusiastic, but also responsible, reliable and trustworthy. They are known for displaying a sense of humour with a willingness to learn. We also partner with corporate groups wanting to take on day projects at our sites like painting, gardening, or assisting with special events like BBQs and Easter/Christmas celebrations.


“Volunteering at New Vista gets me up and going. It is the best thing in the world for me to be giving myself to others.”

“It's nice to be able to bring a smile to the face of others. I go away with a feeling of joy after volunteering. I wouldn’t get the same feeling if someone was paying me. When I volunteer at New Vista, something new and memorable happens each visit. I go away and think, ‘Wow that was remarkable.’ We’ll all be in vulnerable situations some day and need help. Makes me appreciate all that I have and could take for granted.”
