Call for Volunteers at Western Canada Health Shows

We Need Your Help

NHPPA is excited to be partnering with The Health Shows in an effort to educate the public in Western Canada about the threats currently facing Natural Health Products. But, we need more help to get our message shared.

Can you help? 

We are looking for volunteers in Victoria, Calgary, and Vancouver to work at The Health Shows in various capacities. We have outlined most of the details below.

For a look at the shows, check out the highlights video from Victoria

If you’re in these areas of Western Canada, and are interested being part of NHPPA’s work by volunteering your time, we want to hear from you!

There are two ways to express your interest:

  1. Call 1.519.648.2050 and ask for Julia Rickert
  2. Email info@nhppa.org with the Subject “Volunteer for Western Shows”. In your email please include: what show you are able to volunteer for and what dates and times you are available. Both days would be the ideal but we are open to the time you have to support.

Thank you in advance! We look forward to connecting with you.
