Become a Volunteer

“Never doubt that a small group of committed, thoughtful individuals can change the world. In fact, it’s the only thing that has.” Margaret Mead

Join our Movement:  Become a Sustainable Orillia Volunteer and help protect Orillia and the World from Climate Change.


Thank you for your interest in becoming a Sustainable Orillia volunteer.  In doing so, you are joining more than seventy of your neighbours and friends; thought leaders and committed citizens from all areas of our community who have joined forces in the battle against climate change.   The consequences of climate change have arrived and will worsen in the years ahead unless we all work together to raise consciousness, to engage and influence behavior change that will help preserve our quality of life starting now and into the future.

Sustainable Orillia is an incorporated not-for-profit organization that is entirely volunteer-led. We are dedicated to raising the awareness, engagement and behavior change required to reduce carbon emissions and combat climate change here in Orillia.  Every volunteer’s contribution is meaningful and every volunteer takes our mission deeper into the community;  reaching and influencing more individuals. 

Sustainable Orillia is organized into seven active sectors, providing opportunities for volunteers to participate on the sector team of their choice and/or lend a hand more broadly with organizational-wide activities.  Sustainable Orillia has strong governance policies in place.  Policies have been developed to help ensure the health and safety of all our volunteers, the protection of your privacy and a respectful volunteer environment.  

Welcome to Sustainable Orillia.  Click here to sign up and submit your registration form.  One of our Board Members of Sector Chairs will contact you shortly to welcome you personally on board.
