Volunteer Opportunities

Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something!

Our Volunteers are the BEST! We really appreciate the support you have given us over the many years and we ask that you consider helping your community for our various events and beyond. We are always looking for helpers for the following jobs:


April Membership Drive – We need a few community-minded volunteers to help us cover every house in Fairview during our Membership Drive. Get some exercise, meet your neighbours and help your community by keeping our membership strong. Canvassers on each street needed for a 2-3 hour commitment to sell community memberships door-to-door. Contact our Membership Coordinator.


Spring Fling — May of each year. One of our most successful events. We need many helpers to make this a sucess:

  • Traffic directors (2 people at any given time)
  • Truck drivers and helpers for household pickups
  • Concession staff (2-3 people) to cook for our volunteers
  • Membership seller and pickups director
  • Waste “flingers”
  • Cleanup crew (push brooms appreciated!)


Spring Bottle Drive bag distribution – Week in May (prior to the drive) – we need as many people as we can get to help deliver garbage bags/leaflets door-to-door in mailboxes for our Bottle Drive. The distribution of bags is critical to the success of the bottle drive! This is a super-easy job and can be done quickly with extra helpers (each person can typically do about 2 houses per minute). If you can do a route (1-3 streets) in your area, please let us know!


Bottle Drive and  – Usually held in May. We have many jobs on this day including Bottle loaders, Cleanup crew, and Door to door pickups – we need volunteers with trucks/vans to drive and helpers to load vehicles. Each driver will get a route of about 3-5 streets. Free truck wash included if you use your vehicle! Also Concession volunteers to cook BBQ lunch for our awesome volunteers (all supplies provided).


Adopt-a-rink – Our outdoor ice rink is usually up and running by mid-December with the help of our Volunteer Rink Master who organizes events for building, maintaining, and taking down the rink at the end of the season.  If any of these things sound interesting to you, please make sure you reach out to rink@fairviewcommunity.ca.  You can also check our Facebook group “Flavelle Rink Crew”, where we post updates of events and other things that are needed, along with some pretty cool pictures.


Board Members – Are you interested in meeting people and building friendships? Do you want to make a difference in your community? We want you to join our volunteer Board of Directors! Bring your skills, work as part of our team, give back to your community, develop leadership skills, meet your neighbours, and best of all, have fun! At our AGM in June, we will elect our Board of Directors for the next year. If you are interested in joining, we encourage you to attend any monthly Board Meeting (1st Tuesday of the month).


Planning & Development – Fairview has lots of exciting development on the horizon – both in our residential and formerly industrial areas.  Do you have expertise to help usher in and guide this evolution?


Our community’s Board, events, and projects are all volunteer-led, so if you have ideas, time and talent to lend, please Contact us. We would LOVE to have you on our team!
