Every day we see the power of community: bringing together individuals who want to overcome a barrier with those who want to help out.

Our volunteers get as much from the process as do participants.

There’s a wide age-range of people sharing their talents via our charitable societies, from students through to retirees, and all sorts of skills and backgrounds. What’s common is people sharing something they love – access to leisure, social or employment opportunities – and a belief that communities can be fair and accessible. Contact us to talk more about opportunities.

Volunteers find solutions to everyday barriers

Over 200 volunteers across Canada power the Tetra program in communities from Victoria, British Columbia to St. John’s Newfoundland. Tetra volunteers work both independently and collaboratively to design and build innovative custom-assistive devices that enable people with disabilities to overcome physical barriers in their everyday lives.

Bringing diverse perspectives and skills, Tetra volunteers are united in their passion and commitment to find solutions where none may exist or are accessible. Working directly with clients and often sharing ideas with other volunteers, the process to design, build and complete projects is both rewarding and practical.

The Disability Foundation and its affiliated societies comply with COVID-19 protocols as determined by the provincial health authorities (e.g., BC: https://www.worksafebc.com/en/covid-19; ON: https://www.ontario.ca/page/covid-19-workplace-health-safety). Our workers and volunteers will follow such protocols and must be vaccinated to work with and within our organizations (offices, program locations, and home visits), unless a medical exemption is in place. To protect our workers and volunteers, we expect our clients and partners to comply with COVID-19 health and safety regulations which means fully vaccinated unless there is a medical exemption. 

Thank you for making everyone’s health and safety the top priority.
