Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Golf Canada. Volunteers are the heartbeat of our organization – nearly 4,000 individual volunteers are required every year to conduct our championships and support our Councils and Committees and Board of Directors.
Golf Canada embraces an environment where diversity, equity, and inclusion are cultural norms and where all individuals regardless of race, language, national or ethnic origin, citizenship, Indigenous identity, colour, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marital status, family status, genetic characteristics, disability, or any other protected ground are respected and valued.
Golf Canada seeks to create welcoming environments that encourage and support engagement in the sport of golf so that Golf Canada better reflects the rich diversity of Canada in all aspects of our organization.
Below you will find information and links for volunteering for our Councils and Committees, Board of Directors and Professional Championships. We welcome your application for these opportunities, each of which requires a separate application for the respective volunteer positions: Councils and Committees, Board of Directors, and Professional Championships.
