A brief introduction to the Alzheimer Society of Niagara Region, its history and programs.
It is important to familiarize yourself with the Volunteer Policies of the Alzheimer Society of Niagara Region. Confidentiality, Harassment, Discrimination and Safety are important to the organization. We hope all volunteers can find a meaningful position within our organization.
All volunteers are required to complete Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) training. AODA training provides organizations and workers/volunteers with the knowledge of the AODA and the Human Rights Code; in addition, workers/volunteers will learn how to interact with people with various types of disabilities.
All volunteers are required to complete WHMIS (Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System) Training. The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) is Canada’s national standard for communicating information about hazardous workplace products. It is implemented through complementary federal, provincial and territorial laws. Originally established in 1988, the purpose of WHMIS is to ensure employers and workers receive consistent and comprehensive health and safety information about the hazardous products they may be exposed to at work.
