Canvasser & Advance Notice Delivery


Canvassers are volunteers that distribute promotional material for our programs across the city. Canvassers were primarily needed for our currently dormant Tree Blitz program, to distribute advance notices to homeowner mailboxes or pre-canvas the targeted neighbourhood 1-2 weeks before the event. Canvassers were also needed to canvass houses that were not reached during events after the Tree Blitz season is over.

We may also reach out to Canvasser volunteers to help us distribute promotional material for other programs such as; posters for our spring and fall park tree planting events, and oursummer aftercare events.

We have also accepted applications for Neighbourhood ReLeaf Canvass LeadsClick here to apply and for more information.
