How to Get Involved

Canal Days Marine Heritage Festival would not be possible without the support of our 150+ volunteers each year. If you would like to join our team click the button below to access our volunteer application.

If you have any questions about volunteering, please feel free to contact Luke or by phone at 905-835-2900 ext. 566 

All volunteers must attend one mandatory training/orientation session. All volunteers will be provided with a Canal Days t-shirt and food during your volunteer shift.

Certain roles will also require a Vulnerable Sector Police Check. If the role you select in your application does require this, you will be notified.
