Cancer Centre Volunteers - An integral part of the healthcare team

Volunteer Program

At the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency, patients and families are at the heart of all we do, and it takes of team of dedicated individuals to ensure we are improving their experience. 

Our team of healthcare professionals includes oncologists, nurses, physicists, radiation therapists, pharmacists, social workers and dietitians. Volunteers at the Allan Blair Cancer Centre and Saskatoon Cancer Centre are an integral part of that team, providing care and information to patients and families.  

Our Volunteers:
- Welcome patients and families as they arrive for their appointments at the cancer centre.

- Guide patients to areas of the hospital, such as the laboratory and nuclear medicine departments, admitting office, etc.
- Validate parking permits for cancer patients who are in the centre for longer than three hours so they can receive a discounted rate.
- Collate new patient information folders and re-stock pamphlets in the centre.
- Deliver beverages and snacks to patients and family members in the radiation therapy and chemotherapy areas and waiting rooms.
- Help patients select written material and audio/visual aids in the Patient and Family Resource Centre.
- Help patients select turbans and wigs in the Patient Support Centre.
