Volunteer Position Descriptions

Each volunteer is an integral member of a Licensed Casino Event. Volunteers must attend when scheduled as the Casino may not be permitted to operate if volunteer(s) are late or missing, which affects the charity's revenue, the casino employees, and the Casino Facility operator. Though your attendance is important, you need not worry about the performance of your duties. As your Casino Advisors we will fully train you and within minutes you will be a confident, valuable participant in the Licensed Casino Event.

  • No volunteer can consume alcohol prior to or during your shift.
  • No volunteer can gamble in the casino facility during any period (both days) of the Licensed Casino Event regardless if they are on a scheduled shift.
  • All Volunteer Workers should refrain from using cash while on-duty at a Casino Event; volunteer food costs and tips are included, and you cannot loan or borrow money to or from anyone for any reason while on-duty at a casino. Basically there is no reason for a volunteer to have cash in their hand other than for performing their volunteering duties. This also applies to casino chips.
  • There is no reason to have casino chips in your possession for any reason except to perform volunteer duties.
  • The use of smart phones, tablets and laptops is permitted in the volunteer lounge and cash cage; however, the taking of photographs and video of casino operations is prohibited. Some casinos offer Wi-Fi access but there is no guarantee that you can use their network.

COVID-19 Protocols

The casino will be following all provincial guidelines and volunteers should expect that some amount of mask-wearing and social distancing rules will still be in place. Please be prepared to bring your own mask(s) and sanitizer. We'll try to clarify what the casino will be providing, but for now, let's plan for the independent safety measures.

Should restrictions not be lifted, or be lifted and brought back into place, on the dates of our casino, we would be rescheduled completely with no volunteers required to go. Unless you hear directly from us, the casino is on and you are required to attend on time for your shift. Should you have COVID symptoms or receive a positive test for COVID without any symptoms, please do your best to cover your shift. Once all roles are filled, we will try and create a list of backup volunteers that can step in only to cover COVID-related absences.
