“The Government of Canada is proud of all the Canadians whose voluntary work enriches our communities and exemplifies all that makes Canada such a great country,” said Minister Diane Finley. “The Prime Minister’s Volunteer Awards are a celebration of their leadership, dedication, innovation and expertise.”
The regional component recognizes individual volunteers or groups of volunteers, businesses and not-for-profit organizations. The national component is divided into two categories: one for lifelong achievement and one for new volunteers.
Award recipients will be recognized at an award ceremony, and can identify an eligible not-for-profit organization to receive a grant for $5,000 (regional award) or $10,000 (national award).
“The Prime Minister’s Volunteer Awards recognize the contributions of volunteers, businesses and not-for-profit organizations that help make communities stronger,” said MP Daryl Kramp. “There are many deserving award recipients in Prince Edward-Hastings, but someone must nominate them.”
A nominator may be any person or organization with direct knowledge of the nominee’s contribution.
The first recipients of the Prime Minister’s Volunteer Awards were recognized at an awards ceremony last December in Ottawa.
