Participation Agreement

The Volunteer Bureau of Montreal has created a participation agreement, in order to provide a training service that is accessible and fair. We ask you to read this agreement carefully before you register.



Space is limited. The participant is therefore asked to comply with the following registration procedures:

  • In order to attend training, participants must complete our registration form.
  • Submitting your form does not guarantee a place in any workshop.
  • Places will be assigned in order of registration date.
  • A confirmation will be sent to all participants within a reasonable delay after submitting the form.
  • Participants have the responsibility of communicating with the VBM, in case of non-receipt of confirmation.
  • If the number of registrations exceeds our capacity, participants will be added to our waiting list and will be informed.
  • When cancellations occur, we will contact participants on our waiting list in the order of their registration date.
  • The VBM is not able to accept participants who have not complied with these procedures.


Registration fees 

To confirm attendance, the participant agrees to pay the registration fees within the timeframe requested;

  • Your payment should be sent to us so that we receive it 5 working days before the day of training.
  • If we do not receive your payment 5 working days before the day of training, your place could be allocated to another agency on our waiting list.



The participant agrees to notify us of any cancellation or change as soon as possible:

  • The cancellation of your participation might enable us to provide a place to a person on our waiting list, allowing other participants to benefit from the training.
  • Note that organizations that cancel or postpone their registration to later date will be chargedWe ask that you notify us of any changes (e.g. cancellation) as soon as possible, so that we can open the workshop to other participants.

    • An administrative fee of $ 20 per workshops will be charged to organizations that cancel their registration to later date between 10 and 5 days business days before the workshop or that postpone less than 10 business days before the workshop.

    • An administrative fee of $ 40 per workshop will be charged to organizations that cancel their registration less than 5 business days before the workshop. 

    • All the fees will be charged to organizations that do not come to the workshop without any notice or with less than a 24 hours notice.
