    VOLUNTEER COMMITMENT

    I agree to:

    1 – Take all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of my team and of Operation Red Nose clients by complying with, among others, the traffic laws in my province (speed limits, use of seatbelts, signage, parking, etc.). Operation Red Nose is not responsible for any ticket received during the course of my volunteer duties.

    2 – Comply with the Operation Red Nose code of ethics.

    • Sobriety: I must not consume any alcohol or cannabis on the day I work with Operation Red Nose.
    • Confidentiality: All information about Operation Red Nose clients and volunteers that is disclosed to me will remain confidential and will not be used for any purpose other than to fulfill the mandate conferred upon me. I will also not discuss any details with other volunteers that could be used to identify a client or volunteer.
    • Courtesy: I will show patience and courtesy toward clients at all times.
    • Free service: Operation Red Nose is a free service. I will never solicit donations, but if clients wish to make a donation, I will thank them.
    • Fatigue: Operation Red Nose volunteers must often deal with fatigue, and its effects at night must not be underestimated. Therefore, I will not overestimate my capabilities and, if necessary, I will take a nap before reporting for duty as an Operation Red Nose volunteer.
    • Mutual respect: All Operation Red Nose volunteers, whether they work in the headquarters or on the road, deserve my full respect and consideration.

    3 – Return to Operation Red Nose all amounts given to me (donations, tips, gifts, etc.).

    If I do not honour my commitment, Operation Red Nose reserves the right to terminate my participation as a volunteer for the current and future campaigns. The decision of Operation Red Nose is final.

    I authorize Operation Red Nose (ORN) and any police service with jurisdiction over any or all parts of the province in which I reside to conduct a criminal record check to ensure that I meet the selection criteria set out by ORN. However, only judicial antecedents that ORN deems to be incompatible with the volunteer’s assignment will be taken into account. If my assignment requires the driving of a road vehicle, I authorize ORN and any police force to check the validity of my driver’s licence. I also give my consent to the police force to forward the results of the background checks to ORN. A false declaration will result in the refusal of the application. Furthermore, between the time I submit this form and the time I participate as a volunteer, I will inform ORN of any new charge(s) against me relating to an offence and any conviction(s) in connection with such an offence. In accordance with the relevant legislation, ORN and its representative agree to protect the confidentiality of all information and data about the organization’s clients and volunteers. Any declaration form that has not been signed or that contains unanswered questions will be considered incomplete and returned to sender. I also agree to comply with the volunteer commitment set out on the back of this form, which I have read and understood. I certify that the information provided in this declaration is accurate and complete.
