Recognize community volunteers with award nomination

Prime Minister's Volunteer Awards are open to individuals, businesses, and not-for-profit organizations

Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP Mark Strahl is encouraging the community to nominate special volunteers for a Prime Minister’s Volunteer Award.

The award is open to individuals, businesses, and not-for-profit organizations that make exceptional voluntary contributions.

“Volunteers make an enormous difference in the lives of people in our community every day. The Prime Minister’s Volunteer Awards are a way of recognizing the outstanding volunteers among us,” said Strahl.

The Prime Minister’s Volunteer Awards consist of 17 awards in total: 15 regional awards – three awards for each of the five regions across Canada (Atlantic, Quebec, Ontario, the Prairies, British Columbia and the North), and two national awards.

Recipients are recognized at an award ceremony and chose an eligible not-for-profit organization to receive a grant for $5,000 (regional award) or $10,000 (national award).

The call for nominations is open until May 9.
