How to start your CCR

Student handing a document to another student

If your placement is already listed on the Community Engagement Navigator

  • You must have volunteer hours, approved by your supervisor, listed in your Community Engagement Navigator account, which you can log into through uoZone. Any placement listed on the Navigator for which you have approved volunteer hours may be included in your CCR.
  • Keep track of your hours and remember to regularly have them approved by your community partner supervisor.


Finding your own placement (one not listed on the Community Engagement Navigator)

You can register a volunteer project or an extracurricular volunteer (EV) placement and have your volunteer hours added to your Community Engagement Navigator account, if the placement meets Centre criteria and you are a uOttawa student. To do so, fill out and submit an EV Placement Proposed By Student Form (EV PPBS) (PDF version, 212 KB). Once we’ve reviewed the placement and confirmed your volunteer hours with your supervisor, it could appear in your Co-Curricular Record. 

Placements completed in a previous session – Retroactive EV PPBS

If you submit an EV PPBS form that includes volunteer hours you have completed in the past as a uOttawa student* (see new conditions below), we will decide whether to approve these volunteer hours on a case-by-case basis. Normally, if we can easily contact your supervisor, we will approve volunteer hours that you have performed in the past with an organization.


As of September 1, 2016, the Centre will only accept and recognize hours for EV placements proposed by students going back one academic year. For example, if you submit an EV PPBS form during the 2016-2017 academic year, the Centre will only recognize placements you completed in fall 2015 or later. Contact the Centre for more information on retroactive placement approval.


MJCGCE Timesheet Policy

A new Timesheet Policy (PDF version, 363 KB) clarifies deadlines for students posting volunteer hours on the Community Engagement Navigator and for community partners approving them. The new sessional deadlines come into effect on September 1, 2016.
