To request reimbursement for expenses related to obtaining a police check and completing the KHSC medical form:

After three months of consistent service, you can submit an electronic or hard copy receipt (originals required) for expenses related to your application to become a KHSC volunteer (i.e., a police records check with the vulnerable sector search and the KHSC medical form). 

Please note: If there are financial barriers that prevent you from waiting three months for reimbursement, please contact Volunteer Services. We do not want a financial barrier to prevent someone from volunteering at KHSC. 

 

Transportation/Parking

If required, Volunteer Services will provide paid parking or a bus pass for use during volunteer shifts. For volunteers at the KGH site, volunteers can receive a parking pass for the underground (Stuart St.) parking lot or a bus pass through the Secretary in Volunteer Services. For the HDH site, volunteers can request reimbursement for parking every 4 months or receive a bus pass.  There is also a KHSC Shuttle service which volunteers can utilize to go between sites.  To learn more about transportation/parking for KHSC volunteers click here.

Dress Code

KHSC strives to provide a workplace environment where staff and volunteers feel comfortable and safe while dressed accordingly. Clothing must be in good condition, clean and appropriately fitted with I.D. badges properly placed at chest level on a KHSC uniform.

Although the guidelines allow for a wide range of apparel options, some clothing and accessories are more suitable than others for the work environment.
