*An individual membership is an opportunity to support Volunteer Ottawa and entitles individuals to access to workshops, voting rights at the AGM, and more. This tier does not include the ability to make volunteer recruitment posts.

Please note: if you choose to pay by cheque, the transaction will only be completed once the cheque arrives at VO offices. For instant access, VO recommends using a credit card.
