Volunteering for Vancouver Heritage Foundation is an opportunity to help spread the message of the positive effects heritage conservation has on Vancouver while meeting new people and learning about our city’s history, unique architecture and cultural heritage. VHF benefits from the skills and talents of a large and committed group of volunteers.

  • Additional opportunities to attend specific events throughout the year
  • Receive a VHF volunteer t-shirt to wear during events
  • Receive an invitation to our annual volunteer appreciation event
  • Be a part of a thriving community committed to the conservation of Vancouver’s heritage places

Current Opportunities

You can apply to be a volunteer here. Please contact our office at 604 264 9642 or email if you have questions. While some positions are continually seeking new volunteers, additional opportunities will appear on this page. Existing volunteers will occasionally receive invitations to volunteer for special events.


 

Research Volunteers
Long-term special project Heritage Site Finder requires current assistance with research and writing. Positions are remote and at the volunteers’ own schedule until the end of 2021. Interest requires commitment time between now and December 2021.

 

 

Photography & Digital Media Volunteers
Various projects and communications benefit from photographic documentation of heritage buildings and sites. Volunteers must have access to their own equipment and creativity is encouraged. VHF also welcomes support through videography and post-production.
