Get Involved


Are you looking to expand your network, get in on the ground floor, or learn more about the creative industries? Volunteering with CION allows you to meet new people working in the creative industries, as well as allows you to see behind the scenes what it takes to keep the creative industry in motion in Northern Ontario. You'll meet filmmakers, musicians, organizers and influential people from all levels, as well as learn what it takes to be part of the growing industry in the North.

If you've ever asked yourself if a career in the creative arts is for you, volunteering is a great way to get up close and personal. Or if you just want to give back to your community, CION helps keep the North a vibrant cultural destination—your time can help make the place you live a more fun and fulfilling place to be.

Throughout the year, CION and our partnering organizations have many volunteering opportunities for you to consider, whether you have volunteered for CION events in the past or would like to get in on the excitement for the first time.

If you are interested in volunteering at any of our events and other cultural events throughout the year, please fill out our Volunteer Form below or contact CION at (705) 885-9889

Don't forget to sign up for our Newsletter to stay informed on all of the events and resources happening in the creative sector in Northern Ontario.
