Volunteer at the ReStore

PLEASE NOTE: We have now opened our volunteer program again, with measures in place to help keep our team, volunteers and the public safe. You are welcome to complete a volunteer application if you are interested in volunteering. Click here for more information on our COVID-19 response.

All volunteers must provide proof of receiving both doses of a Ministry of Health-approved COVID-19 vaccination.

Do you like hanging out at your local hardware store, enjoy active, physical work or are looking for a way to complete your student volunteer hours? If yes, sign up to become a ReStore volunteer!

We have many volunteer positions to offer at our ReStore such as assisting our driver with picking up donations across the city or helping in the warehouse with receiving, sorting, recycling prepping and repairing. We also have volunteer positions in the retail space assisting with greeting, cashier support and merchandising.

When you help out at Habitat ReStore, you help your community. ReStore proceeds cover a portion of  Habitat Greater Ottawa’s operating costs, so your donations can go directly toward building affordable homes.

Volunteer at one of our two local ReStores today!

A Few Things to Keep in Mind about Volunteering at the ReStore:

  • Our ReStore Orientation is mandatory for new volunteers and must be completed before signing up for your first shift. Orientations are held monthly on Saturday mornings at all ReStore locations. Once you sign up to become a volunteer, you will receive an email invite with more information.
  • All volunteers must be a minimum of 16 years of age. Individuals who are 16-17 years of age require a waiver signed by a parent and/or guardian.
  • We ask for a regular commitment of a 4-hour shift, every week or every second week. Shifts: Monday to Saturday 9am-1pm and 1pm-5pm and Sunday 1pm-5pm.
  • Volunteers are required to provide and wear their own CSA approved steel toe boots.
