When you volunteer, you give the gift of your time

Our internal and external volunteers contribute countless hours each year to help GEF Seniors Housing positively influence seniors’ quality of life.

Volunteers help with programs ranging from exercise and crafts to sharing artistic talents with an appreciative audience, and we always welcome new program ideas and suggestions!

You can choose to volunteer at any one of our 46 different buildings across Edmonton. We offer many volunteer opportunities to interact with seniors living at our residences throughout the city.

To show our appreciation for our volunteers, GEF Seniors Housing hosts a special yearly volunteer recognition event, and provides reference letters and confirmation of your volunteer hours to fulfill academic, corporate and association-based volunteer requirements.
