​​Volunteering Opportunities

The Township of Tiny is committed to creating a caring and inclusive living environment through citizen engagement and provides opportunities for everyone to fully participate in the life of his/her community. 

In January 2010, Council passed a Volunteer Management Policy.  The policy outlines an overall framework for the recruitment and management of volunteers involved in the delivery of Township of Tiny services and/or special events.  To read the policy, please click on the link below called "Volunteer Policy".

Volunteer Policy

The Recreation Department, with the help of volunteers and municipal staff, is currently developing a Volunteer Manual. This manual will address procedures from volunteer recruitment, to screening, to recognition.

The Township of Tiny wishes to take this opportunity to thank its volunteers; Members of Committees of Council, Parks and Recreation Association Members, and Special Events Volunteers; your time and efforts are greatly appreciated!

Bluewater Planting Event

The Bluewater Beach planting is an annual project to transplant beach grasses from healthy areas on the dune to areas prone to erosion.  This initiative allows community groups and volunteers to partner and work together on the restoration of the dunes on our public beaches.

Contact Bonita ​at 705-526-4204 ext 230/ bdesroches@tiny.ca for more information or to sign up for the event.

2017 CIT & CIT Plus Program

The Township of Tiny offers two Counselor-in-Training (CIT) programs open to youth ages 12 to 17. Both programs provide an excellent opportunity for youth to contribute to the community while developing leadership skills in a fun and safe environment. In order to maximize the experience, the CIT program is structured so that each participant completes a community engagement initiative, volunteers in the day camp setting, and in age appropriate activities. It is our goal that by the end of the program, each participant develops confidence, character and connections with peers.

The Township of Tiny's CIT Training is mandatory for all youth interested in volunteering in Tiny's Summer Day Camp program and/or to collect community service hours.  Each Leadership Camp includes a week of meaningful leadership training, a CIT shirt, and a volunteer opportunity in Tiny's Day Camp. CITs will be asked to provide their volunteer week(s) availability at the time of registration so that they can be assigned their volunteer week(s) as soon as possible.

The CIT Program is available for youth ages 12-17 and requires participants to volunteer for one week (40 hours) in the day camp setting. 

The CIT Plus Program is available for youth ages 14-17 that have already graduated from our CIT program. CIT Plus participants are required to volunteer for two weeks (80 hours) in the day camp setting. 

The CIT and CIT Plus programs were a huge success in 2016, with 40 CITs on board to assist with the Township's Summer Day Camp program, with a waiting list of youth hoping to participate.  So sign-up early to avoid disappointment!

Outdoor Ice Rink Team

All of the outdoor rinks are owned and maintained by the Municipality. However, the Township welcomes volunteers to become involved in the Volunteer Supported Outdoor Ice Rink Program as a member of an Outdoor Ice Rink Team (four or more volunteers).

The Township of Tiny's Volunteer Supported Outdoor Ice Rink Program is a winter volunteer opportunity through which volunteers help flood and maintain a designated Township outdoor ice surface. 

The Township's Volunteer Supported Outdoor Ice Rink Program is a fun and social program that gives people the opportunity to get together with friends and neighbours to help keep the Townships skating rinks flooded; looking clean and well cared for. 

Volunteers must undergo an interview and screening process before being accepted into the program. Once accepted, volunteers receive job specific orientation and training.  

For additional information on the Volunteer Supported Outdoor Ice Rink Program, please contact Bonita at 705-526-4204 ext. 230 or rallen@tiny.ca
