Volunteer Management

As part of our initiative in Safe Envrironments and Abuse Prevention, the Archdiocese of Edmonton has strengthened screening and training requirements for all employees as well as for volunteers who serve in any parish or archdiocesan ministries or programs.

The Archdiocese will provide training for the designated Volunteer Coordinator in each parish to assist the parish in implementing the new Volunteer Management Policy so that we can ensure, to the best of our ability, that all programs and ministries operate within safe environments.

Following are links to the policy documents that Volunteer Coordinators will be working with:
