To volunteer is to be inspired!

I thank life, grateful that Accueil Bonneau has crossed my path. In a world where everything goes so fast, receiving so much human warmth, it’s so inspiring and motivating! To be part of this big family is a priviledge. It seems like I am the one giving, but really, I am the lucky one who is receiving so much!

I am proud to volunteer at Accueil Bonneau!

EXAMPLES of volunteer experiences at accueil Bonneau

Dining Room

The Accueil Bonneau’s dining room is open every single day of the year. We are always looking for assistant cooks, dishwashers, servers, etc. 

Clothing Depot

The depot where clothing and shoes are distributed allows a direct and sincere rapport with the Accueil Bonneau’s clientele. Come enrich your life through contact with Montreal’s homeless people.


Are you retired, studying, or still working as a hairdresser? The Accueil Bonneau needs your hairdressing skills to freshen up our clientele and help them recover their sense of pride.


Shoes and boots are among the most important donations for the homeless people who frequent the Accueil Bonneau. If you know how to mend shoes back into shape, we need your services.

Expert Volunteers and Interns

At the Accueil Bonneau, we can give you the opportunity to make full use of your professional expertise. Whether you are in training, still active, or retired, if you have an expertise in IT, plumbing, cooking, social work, driving, or in the fields of health or social services, then we definitely need your help.

Reception | Administration

Efficient and empathetic people must be present at all times to welcome visitors to the Accueil Bonneau. If you think that you are fit to work at the day centre and waiting room, or answer calls directed at the administrative offices, this is your perfect opportunity to get involved!
