Volunteering your time for your community’s well-being

Centre de bénévolat et moisson Laval (CBML) is a leader in its field, working to improve food security and to develop an efficient community-support network.

By recruiting volunteers, we can provide services to the population and community-based organizations across Laval.

Volunteering is a great way of expressing social solidarity and mutual aid. It provides you with opportunities to give back to your community and make a meaningful impact on the people and organizations that benefit from your act of kindness.


Onboarding and orientation

Once you have sent your application, we will invite you to meet with a recruitment consultant. At this meeting, which should last about 40 minutes, we will discuss your interests, skills, aptitudes, availability, and motivation so as to find a volunteer opportunity that meets your expectations and ensures your satisfaction and desire to stay on.


Get involved with community-based organizations near you! Whether you take part on a regular or occasional basis, being a volunteer means joining a united movement where it’s good to give and receive, regardless of the size and nature of your contribution.

Be a volunteer


In small groups of five to ten people maximum, follow a regular volunteer in his or her tasks and see for yourself how CBML takes action! For large groups, your team will be divided into smaller subgroups to carry out your volunteering activities.

Do you want to get involved in a different way? You can organize a fundraising drive or food-collection activity.
