Please visit our website at www.reimagineontario.ca to find more information about our work.
As a volunteer of Re-Imagine Ontario, the Friendly Visitor Ambassador provides one on one support to socially isolated and lonely seniors located in Halton and Mississauga communities. This includes friendly phone calls, Zoom chats, or home visits (if assessed as safe), where the FVA volunteer acts as friend to an isolated senior. Visits include conversations and social activities and may assist with basic support as companionship to seniors. The goal of FV is to make contact remotely and in-person to encourage seniors to stay active, healthy, and socially engaged within their local communities.
Re-Imagine Ontario strives to build an inclusive workforce that reflects the rich diversity of the communities in which we live and serve. All qualified applicants may apply. We strongly encourage applications from persons with lived experience in the communities we serve within Halton-Peel, including Black and Indigenous people, youth and seniors.
