Materials and resources to help PEO volunteers be productive and get the most from their volunteer experience: Volunteer manual, orientation and compliance training

Volunteer Requirements

This page outlines the mandatory requirements for PEO volunteer applicants and PEO volunteers. 

Volunteer Compliance Training

The Government of Ontario mandates that volunteers receive occupational health and safety and accessibility training. The intent of the training is to educate PEO volunteers on their rights and responsibilities as volunteers, as well as their duties when working in a volunteer capacity, so that they may perform their work safely and in compliance with the law.

The following names are of all volunteers who have completed the Ontario government-mandated health & safety/accessibility training requirement as of February 25, 2020. If you have completed the training and cannot find your name on the list, please contact volunteering@peo.on.ca as soon as possible. 

To register for the training, please send the following information to volunteering@peo.on.ca:

  • Legal first, last name
  • PEO number (if applicable)
  • Valid email address
  • Chapter affiliation (if applying for a chapter position)

Volunteer Manual

As a global leader in self-regulation, PEO relies heavily on its volunteers. More than 1,000 professional engineers, engineering interns and non-engineers volunteer their time each year on behalf of the association through participation in governance and operations.

To help our volunteers be productive and to help make their volunteer experience enjoyable, we have developed a Volunteer Manual to support you in your new role as a PEO volunteer. This manual will provide you information about PEO’s regulatory role, its governance structure and its volunteer policies and procedures. There is also information on PEO’s recognition program and awards.
