Canada's Volunteer Awards recognize community leaders, not-for-profit organizations, social enterprises and businesses who have made significant contributions in improving the lives of others. Award recipients are highly engaged in their communities and inspire Canadians to make a difference through volunteering.
The next call for nominations will launch in winter 2023. Nominees can be individual volunteers, groups of volunteers, socially responsible businesses, social enterprises, or not-for-profit organizations.
Regional award recipients can identify a charity or not-for-profit organization to receive a $5,000 grant, and the national Thérèse Casgrain Lifelong Achievement Award recipient can identify a not-for-profit organization to receive a $10,000 grant.
"The stories and achievements of our Canada's Volunteer Awards recipients are truly inspiring, and it is an honour to recognize and celebrate their accomplishments. I also want to extend our heartfelt thanks to all the volunteers from across Canada who continue to contribute to finding new and innovative ways of making a difference in their communities."
– Minister of Families, Children and Social Development, Karina Gould
