May 9 – Nominations Due for the Prime Minister’s Volunteer Awards

Do you know an individual, not-for-profit, or business who deserves recognition for their commitment to volunteerism?  The Prime Minister’s Volunteer Awards celebrate Canadians who make a difference.

The press release WWEST received about these awards is below – please visit the website below to learn more.

“I am pleased to inform you that nominations are now being accepted for the Prime Minister’s Volunteer Awards until May 9, 2014.

“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; and
  • 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).
“Let’s give Canada’s volunteers the recognition they deserve. Nominate a volunteer, not-for-profit organization or a business in your community today!
“For more information about the Awards and the current call for nominations, or to learn more about previous award recipients, please visit www.pm.gc.ca/awards or call 1-877-825-0434.”
