Volunteer with the Foundation

Volunteers are the backbone of the OSMH Foundation. While they may be from all walks of life, all ages, and all stages, our volunteers have a common desire to make a difference in their community by donating their time and expertise.

Our enthusiastic and talented volunteers are an important part of the success of our annual fundraising initiatives. They participate in our mailings, special events and make up our Board of Directors.

If you are interested in volunteering with the Foundation, please contact the OSMH Foundation at 705-325-6464 or email found@osmh.on.ca.
