Get Involved in The Canadian Clay & Glass Community

Volunteers are a valuable resource, contributing unique talents, skills and knowledge to the many facets of the operations at the Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery. Volunteers help out with almost every aspect of the Gallery, playing an integral role in our operations.

We have a variety of departments eager to welcome in new volunteers, including: public programs, the archives, and front reception. Our volunteer hours are flexible, and we hope you will enjoy working with us as much as we hope to provide you with an enriching and valuable volunteer experience.

We have also begun a new volunteer team of both seniors and staff to help us brainstorm and run the Gather at The Gallery program for persons 55+. We would love to welcome new members!

If you’re interested in volunteering some time at the Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery, please contact Cheyenne at, or call her at 519-746-1882 ext. 232.
