This service is available to seniors and adults with disabilities, or adults recovering from illness or injury. Our volunteer drivers are licensed to drive in Ontario, carry their own insurance and are screened through our volunteer recruitment process. License and insurance records are updated annually.
Volunteer drivers provide transportation to medical appointments, treatments, community services, shopping, banking, grocery shopping or to social and recreational activities. A per kilometre or flat rate reimbursement for drivers’ out of pocket expenses such as fuel, insurance, and vehicle maintenance is paid by the client or the client's coverage directly to the volunteer. Volunteer drivers do not receive payment for their time – this is their generous gift to the community.
