Volunteering is a great way to get involved.


Be a Volunteer Today

Steps for Life is an event driven by community volunteers committed to workplace health and safety and supporting families who've experienced a workplace tragedy. If you would like to lend a hand, please contact your Regional Development Coordinator to volunteer at Steps for Life. You can jump start the process by filling in a volunteer application form, or call us at 1-888-567-9490 to find out more about volunteer opportunities in your area.

Steps for Life events across Canada may continue to look a little different in 2023, as each community tackles the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic in their region. The health and safety of our volunteers and participants is our highest priority and we will continue to work closely with planning committees to ensure all appropriate precautions are in place.

Whichever shape your local event takes, one thing is for certain: we can use your help! There are many ways you can help our worthy cause and have fun while giving your time and support, including:
