The Prime Minister’s Awards, which recognize achievements in a wide range of volunteer activity are seeking nominations for this year’s round of awards.

Nominations are sought for individual volunteers or groups of volunteers who give of their time, energy and expertise; businesses whose commitment to social responsibility strengthens the communities in which their employees live; and not-for-profit organizations whose innovative approaches to volunteerism make a difference every day in the lives of Canadians.

Award recipients will be recognized at a ceremony and can identify an eligible not-for-profit organization to receive a grant for $5,000 (regional award) or $10,000 (national award).

As your organization is one that could both nominate someone or be nominated, please share information about the Prime Minister’s Volunteer Awards and the call for nominations. Let’s give Canada’s volunteers the recognition they deserve.
