Offering opportunities to make a difference

Dixon Hall’s Volunteer department is made up of more than 1,200 volunteers a year, who dedicate their time and talents to 25 different programs and services across every department. Without the incredible support of these generous individuals, many of our programs would not be able to operate.

Annually, Dixon Hall’s Board of Directors recruits independent directors from the community.

Generally, recruitment occurs in the late spring for nominations to occur at our Annual General Meeting (AGM) in September.
