The Strathcona CPC offers a wide range of volunteer opportunities from assisting the public in the office, to foot patrol and speed watch. There are numerous opportunities to partner with the VPD and other CPC’s at VPD outreach events. The Strathcona CPC will also be developing outreach events in the Strathcona neighbourhood.

A CPC just starting offers unique opportunities for volunteers to step into leadership roles to help develop and run programs.

Volunteers come from a wide variety of backgrounds, skill sets, education, and ages but all have one thing in common — they are interested in making a difference in the Strathcona Community.

The Strathcona CPC takes pride in the diversity and talents of its volunteers. CPC volunteers are self-directed and choose which programs or activities in which they want to participate to fulfill their 4-hour minimum per month commitment.
