Prime Minister's Volunteer Awards
Every day, millions of individuals volunteer their time to help improve the well-being of communities across our country. To promote Canada’s culture of giving and philanthropy, the Government of Canada created the Prime Minister's Volunteer Awards. These Awards recognize individual volunteers, innovative not-for-profit organizations, and forward-thinking businesses who work together to tackle social challenges. The Awards highlight achievements in a wide range of volunteer activity, including:
• a not-for-profit organization whose innovative approaches to volunteerism make a difference every day in the lives of Canadians;
• individual volunteer or groups of volunteers who give of their time, energy and expertise; and
• businesses whose commitment to social responsibility strengthens the communities in which they operate.
Award recipients will be recognized at a ceremony and will be asked to identify an eligible not-for-profit organization to receive a grant for $5,000 (regional award) or $10,000 (national award).
The deadline for nominating a volunteer is June 30, 2015.
Let's give Canada's volunteers the recognition they deserve. Nominate a volunteer, not-for-profit organization or business in your community today!
