Volunteerism contributes to making Canada such a great country. Each year, over 13 million Canadians volunteer over 2 billion hours of their time and effort for others. To promote Canada's culture of giving and philanthropy, the Government of Canada created the Prime Minister's Volunteer Awards. These awards recognize individual volunteers, innovative not-for-profit organizations, and forward-thinking businesses who work together to tackle social challenges. The awards recognize achievements in a wide range of volunteer activity, including:

  • Not-for-profit organizations whose innovative approaches to volunteerism make a difference every day in the lives of Canadians
  • 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 they operate

Award recipients will be recognized at a ceremony and will be asked to identify an eligible not-for-profit organization to receive a grant for $5,000 (regional award) or $10,000 (national award). Give Canada's volunteers the recognition they deserve and nominate a volunteer, not-for-profit organization or a business in your community today.
