MISSION TRUE NORTH IS
1 mission, *5 locations
from coast to coast
Change the world by changing hearts in Canada.
BUT Here's the twist:
You will not apply to be on a specific mission, but will apply to be on Mission True North. Once accepted, then you will be informed where in Canada you will be going.
I WILL GO DO SAY
Applications are now closed.
We are not able to give an answer until we have received three completed references for you. Once we have all of your references it can be anywhere from one day to a few weeks before you know if you are accepted. It will take longer to receive an answer the weeks surrounding the application deadline.
If you are accepted you will be emailed an acceptance package with more information. To secure your spot on the team, you will need to sign and return the mission release forms, and submit your non-refundable deposit.
The deposit can range anywhere from $100 to $500, depending on the total cost of the mission.
Yes, but you are only given a limited amount of time to submit your mission deposit. If you can raise the cost of the deposit, and submit it to CCO™ within a week of your acceptance, great!
The cost of a mission can be covered through personal payments, donations from others or some combination of the two. Upon acceptance you will receive a payment timeline and are expected to meet financial deadlines at checkpoints leading up to the beginning of the mission project. You are welcome to pay for the mission out of your own funds but we do encourage fundraising and provide tools to be able to do so.
No. However, if you have a surplus of funds after mission, those excess funds can be used to reimburse mission related expenses. This expenses could include things like transportation to the orientation city, vaccines, materials for thank you cards, etc.
Non-students are allowed to apply for CCO™ mission trips. However, since our organization’s primary work is with university students, students will have priority in trip placements. As well, as our missions are for university-aged young adults, applicants under the age of 30 will be considered.
During this global pandemic, the CCO Executive, based on government guidelines and requirements, has made policies and structures to keep CCO staff and students safe while participating in the New Evangelization. Those accepted to Mission acknowledge and accept that CCO is doing everything we can to keep students safe, but there is always a risk.
Since the situation of COVID is constantly evolving, each mission will be following provincial and federal health guidelines. To help in this, all mission teams are made up of local staff and students, so staff and students will not be living in a community. Secondly, the mission leaders are asked to plan for the mission to be 100% in-person and 100% online in the planning process. This allows us to be prepared for whatever guidelines are in place and for participants to have a meaningful mission.
