posted on 10:31 AM, January 11, 2011
The Prime Minister’s Volunteer Awards have been created to recognize Canadians who devote their time, energy and resources to make a difference in the lives of others.

Prime Minister's Volunteer Awards

A total of 17 Prime Minister’s Volunteer Awards will be awarded across the country. Three awards will be available in each of the following five Canadian regions: Atlantic Canada, Québec, Ontario, the Prairies, British Columbia and Northern Canada. These will be presented in the following categories:

  • Community Leader Award
  • Business Leader Award
  • Social Innovator Award

There will also be two national awards, one to recognize lifelong achievement and one for a young adult.

Regional award recipients will receive a $5,000 grant for the not-for-profit organization of their choice, while national award recipients will receive $10,000 for their organization of choice.

The first call for nominations for the awards will open in April 2011 during National Volunteer Week. Recipients will be recognized at an awards ceremony in December 2011.
