Volunteer Orientation

Wednesday, September 11 at 6:00pm at the Parq in the Burrard Room.

General Info


The Volunteer Room is the “Granville Room” located within the JW Marriott Parq Vancouver’s conference centre level. From the lobby, proceed to the elevators to the left and down the hall from the Honey Salt Restaurant, and select the conference/ballroom level in the elevator. You can then proceed to the Granville Room.

On the event night please arrive half an hour before you are scheduled to start. Dinner will be served twice, at 4:30pm and 6:15pm. A late-night snack will also be served at 9:30pm.


Please wear all black. Comfortable shoes are recommended, as you will be on your feet for most of the evening.


Transit or carpooling is encouraged. If you will be driving, please self-park in the Parq’s underground parkade. Valet parking will not be reimbursed. There will be a parking code to access free parking. This will be shared closer to the event.


There will be someone in the Volunteer Room at all times, so valuables will be safe.


Volunteers are not permitted to drink alcohol at the Gift of Time.
