Départs internationaux

Cependant, le contexte mondial actuel continue d’évoluer et, comme nous continuons à surveiller de près les informations et les directives internationales, nationales et locales en matière de santé, nos plans et nos échéanciers sont susceptibles d’être modifiés. La santé et la sécurité de nos partenaires et de nos volontaires sont notre priorité absolue et, à ce titre, nous avons entrepris un processus rigoureux de planification de la reprise du volontariat international. Un certain nombre de conditions auront besoin d’être remplies avant qu’une affectation ne reçoive le feu vert, notamment la levée des restrictions canadiennes sur les voyages non essentiels. Toutes les personnes qui envisagent de devenir volontaires à l’étranger avec l’EUMC doivent se préparer à faire preuve d’ouverture d’esprit, de flexibilité et accepter de remplir les conditions suivantes :

  • Les volontaires doivent être entièrement vacciné.e.s (deux doses de vaccin) contre la COVID-19 et être en mesure de fournir la preuve de leur vaccination.
