Volunteering with BCAK


Why Volunteer For BCAK?

Volunteering provides a sense of community and pride for the community. It also allows members to meet new people and develop relationships – this contributes to learning from each other and helps BCAK meet its mission and goals.

BCAK has thrived for over twenty-five years because of the strong commitment and passion of its volunteers.

How to Volunteer for BCAK

  • From time to time, there may be a specific ‘call for volunteers’ for a committee or event through BCAK's various media – consider how you might be able to support that call.

  • While you think about your skill set – think about volunteering outside your comfort zone – that is when we learn the most.

  • If you are not sure what suits your needs or what BCAK is looking for in its volunteers, don’t hesitate to contact the office. 

Call us at 613-531-7912 or email 


 What Do Our Volunteers Do?

  • Help outside organizations with fundraising for BCAK.

  • Assist at BCAK events or fundraisers - our Annual Walk, Share the Care Golf tournament, and Charity Dance.

  • Volunteers write our newsletters, sew our puffy pillows, pouches, and ribbons and work in our office.​

 Without our volunteers, BCAK would not exist and their hard work & dedication allows BCAK more visibility and awareness in the community. ​

They are our Ambassadors...spreading awareness of our organization in the community.

They make a difference!

BCAK Ribbon Project

BCAK’s teardrop-shaped pink-on-black ribbons attached to BCAK business cards help to make our organization more visible to the public.

  • The teardrop represents the tears shed at the time of diagnosis. 

  • The pink ribbon salutes the courage of the thousands of people who are diagnosed. 

  • The black lining honours the memory of those who have died. 

The challenge is to end the deaths so that we can remove the black lining and wear the pink ribbon in celebration.


BCAK volunteers stitch the ribbons and make the ribbons and business cards available to the public free of charge at an ever-increasing number of our fundraising events and public displays.


If you would like to assist with this program, please contact the office at 613 531-7912.
