In the event that I become injured or ill while engaged in my volunteer capacity for the Home, I will not hold the Corporation of the County of Simcoe responsible. The Corporation of the County of Simcoe takes pride in and is responsible to ensure a safe and secure environment for our Residents, their families, volunteers and staff.

• In the course of participating in the volunteer program, I may be in receipt or have knowledge of confidential information including, but not limited to, client identities, material, records, memoranda, personal health information, data and results pertaining to, arising from, or containing particulars of, confidential information. I agree that I shall not at any time while I am providing volunteer services for the County of Simcoe, or at any time after those services are completed, disclose to anyone any confidential information, except as may be required or permitted by law, or at the request of the County of Simcoe, or as required to perform volunteer services.

• I have read this release, been given a reasonable opportunity to seek independent legal advice, and understand all of its terms; I sign it voluntarily, with full knowledge of its significance.
