Nominations Now Open for the Prime Minister's Volunteer Awards!
Do you know an outstanding volunteer? Why not nominate them for a Prime Minister's Volunteer Award?
The Prime Minister’s Volunteer Awards recognize the enormous contributions volunteers, innovative not-for-profit organizations and forward‑thinking businesses make to their communities through voluntary contributions and innovative ideas and approaches to address social challenges. Volunteering, charitable donations and philanthropy all play a key role in helping communities to address these challenges, and these prestigious awards are an opportunity to recognize the tremendous contributions of many Canadians who work together to improve the well-being of families and communities across the country.
The Prime Minister's Volunteer Awards program consists of 17 awards in total, two at the national level and 15 at the regional level. The Awards highlight best practices in community leadership and encourage partnerships across sectors. The goal of the awards is to inspire Canadians from all walks of life to find new ways of making a difference in their communities
