news image

Have you ever wondered how you can show your appreciation for an amazing volunteer in your community? Canada’s Volunteer Awards, a comprehensive volunteer recognition program, is now accepting nominations in five categories and five regions of Canada until June 12, 2024. 

For individual volunteers, there are three categories:  

  • Emerging Leader for youth between the ages of 18 and 30,  
  • Community Leader for individual volunteers of all ages, and  
  • the Thérèse Casgrain Lifelong Achievement Award for volunteers with twenty or more years serving their community.  

To recognize the spirit of volunteering in organizations,  

  • the Social Innovator category honours not-for-profit organizations and social enterprises, while  
  • the Business Leader category celebrates social responsibility demonstrated by businesses and social enterprises. 

The recognition package for award recipients includes a $5,000 or $10,000 grant awarded to the not-for-profit organization of the recipient’s choosing. Recipients are invited to participate in a facilitated discussion with their fellow recipients regarding their experiences and best practices. This is a fantastic opportunity for making connections with like-minded people and organizations. 

We all play a role in recognizing volunteers! The 2023 recipients nominated by their peers include Humble Beginning Stories, Survivors of Abuse Recovering (S.O.A.R.), and the Ashcroft HUB Society. Meet all the CVA recipients and learn about the significant impact they made in their community through volunteering. Please visit the Canada’s Volunteer Awards website to learn more about the Awards and to submit a nomination for a deserving volunteer.
