Opportunity Description:


You understand that cancer can change everything, and you want to help people in your community get access to their Cancer treatment through our Wheels of Hope program.

You are ready to do your best to make a client’s ride to treatment one less thing they have to worry about, allowing them the space and focus to handle their journey in their own way.

You have a valid driver’s license with 3 or fewer demerit points. You carry a minimum of $1M third party liability insurance on your 100% smoke-free and reliable vehicle and are willing to have a criminal record check completed. The Wheels of Hoppe operates Monday to Friday during the day following most hospital hours.


As an organization we will provide you with training and support to prepare you for this important role. You will be supported by a Transportation Coordinator, who will be providing your driving schedule and be there to help you throughout your time on the road.

You will be part of the larger Wheels of Hope team, including over 1600 volunteer drivers and many staff who share your desire to help as many people as possible get to their treatments.


  • We ask that you dedicate at minimum a half day to one day weekly, although we are able to accommodate those able to give a few days a month or during particular times of the year (ie summer months, winter months).
  • Your schedule will be provided at least three (3) days ahead of time or more and will depend on busy days/periods, your preferences and client demand.
  • You agree to initiate and respond with regular, consistent communication between the Transportation Coordinator and the clients you are scheduled to drive by giving them a call the day before to confirm their pickup time.

* As a volunteer, you are a representative and ambassador who promotes the mission and values of the Canadian Cancer Society.
