Work Visa for a Volunteer Position????

Post by lostkiwi » Sun Oct 01, 2006 6:05 pm

Hello, can anyone help me please, I would like to Volunteer as a Firefighter in Canada, it is a Volunteer position but they do get paid on a per call basis.

What's the best way of doing this?

Also, if I was on a Study Visa, can I volunteer in this position also?

Thanks for your time.

I have a friend, she is here as a student (in Canada). She has permission to work off-campus (part-time) while she attends college. I'm guessing you would be elgible to volunteer and get paid as long as it is part-time.
