If you wish to volunteer on board, there is an online application process. Once completed, you will be put in contact with the Human Resources department, located at the International Support Centre in the United States. All applications are in English. For most volunteer positions, no interview will be required. In order to get to know you a little better, we ask for references from people who know you well and work with you. The forms are found on the online application (scroll down to line application).
In addition, because you will be considered a volunteer crew member on the ship, you will be subject to maritime law. This will involve various codes and regulations to sign on board and it is also for this reason that a medical form must be completed by your doctor to vouch for your good health. The Mercy Ships Canada Board has final sign off on your application. Our Canadian office is at your disposal at all times before, during or after your application to assist you and answer your questions.
