Volunteering with CAMRT

CAMRT has many opportunities for members to volunteer. These opportunities allow members to build their experience in areas of personal interest, to contribute back to the profession, and also to enjoy meeting other MRTs from throughout the country. Please check back often for opportunities currently available at CAMRT!

Training for CAMRT volunteers: Accessibility

There is legislation in Ontario that affects CAMRT, as well as each of us individually, called the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). The purpose of this legislation is to create a fully accessible Ontario by 2025.

CAMRT seeks to accommodate its customers, employees and volunteers with a disability as best it can. As a volunteer, your contribution to the CAMRT workplace is important, and your interaction with employees or other volunteers who have a disability should be appropriate.

Please take some time to read this mini-workbook on the Integrated Accessibility Standards that CAMRT has put together for our volunteers. We hope you will find it useful and apply what you learn should the need arise. Please send any questions or feedback to Thank you.

These are courses of approximately 30 pages in length, requiring the student to take 6-10 hours to complete. There are no assignments; however, a self-administered post-quiz of 20-30 multiple choice questions must be developed.

The author must request approval of the topic prior to development of the study. Remuneration will be paid upon completion.
