Volunteer efforts make the BCCLA’s work possible, and here are three ways you can get involved in protecting and promoting civil liberties in Canada. We ask that all potential volunteers become members of the BCCLA, and you can sign up as a member here.
Options one and two are longer term commitments with regular schedules.
1. Communications and Development Volunteers
We are now accepting applications for our 2018 Winter Communications & Development Volunteers!
In office volunteers support a variety of initiatives including event planning, fundraising, social media, community outreach, research and more! Volunteers are selected to volunteer in the BCCLA office one day a week (or the equivalent hours split between more than one day) for a period of four months. These great folks do everything from blogging to organizing events.
Please apply by December 15th, 2017. Learn more and apply here!

2. Legal Internships
We offer internships for law students. Interns work in all of our program areas and engage in public policy advocacy by assisting us in litigation, public education, research and media. Next year, we will be hosting student fellows to work full-time (40 hours a week) on cutting-edge legal issues, including advocating for greater police accountability, protecting privacy rights, and national security issues.
Summer 2018 Internships
We are currently accepting applications for Summer 2018. We will accept and evaluate applications on a rolling basis. Students with a strong interest in joining us are encouraged to apply early. For further details and instructions on applying, please follow the link below. Contact BCCLA Acting Litigation Director Caily DiPuma at [email protected] for more information.
3. Explore Other Volunteer Roles!
Interested in volunteering but none of the structured opportunities above make sense for you? Don’t worry! We love volunteers of all kinds! Join our roster of outreach volunteers and you will be invited to sign up for upcoming event opportunities throughout the year, or invited to help us out when opportunities come up that align with your skills.
Tell us about yourself! We’ll be in touch with upcoming opportunities.
