Planned Parenthood Ottawa (PPO) is a volunteer-based organization whose work is carried out through the phenomenal enthusiasm, dedication, and passion of our volunteers. We strive to make PPO a safe and inclusive space for everyone and we welcome and celebrate diversity.

If you are committed to a pro-choice, rainbow-positive, sex-positive, and non-judgmental philosophy you will enjoy volunteering with us. We will give you the opportunity to learn about sexual & reproductive health, participate in our numerous programs, be active in the community, and meet a fantastic group of volunteers and staff who are committed to making healthy sexuality a reality for everyone in the Ottawa community!

Amazing volunteers contribute to all┬álevels of PPO’s work, including: Board of Directors, sexual health counseling, community education workshops and kiosks, special event management, condom distribution, communications, office support, email and telephone support and referrals, fundraising, etc.

If you have an expertise and/or energy and time that you would like to contribute to improving sexual health services, please contact us to discuss ways you can help.
