Nominate a Laker for Canada’s Volunteer Awards


The Nipissing community is full of amazing people, students, faculty and staff, who volunteer their time and energy to help others.  Here is a great opportunity to help recognize a deserving volunteer by nominating them for one of Canada’s Volunteer Awards.

Nominations are now open for Canada’s Volunteer Awards.  The call for nominations is open until June 15, 2018. 

Canada’s Volunteer Awards recipients are nominated by Canadians, for Canadians. This year, 21 awards will be presented at the December 5, award ceremony on International Volunteer Day. Recipients will also have a chance to give back; regional award recipients are eligible to identify a not-for-profit organization to receive a $5,000 grant, and the national award recipient is eligible to identify a not-for-profit organization to receive a $10,000 grant.

Nominations are being accepted in the following categories:

  • One national award – Thérèse Casgrain Lifelong Achievement Award, for individuals who have volunteered for at least 20 years;
  • Five regional awards – Emerging Leader, for young volunteers between the ages of 18 and 30;
  • Five regional awards – Community Leader, for individuals or groups of volunteers;
  • Five regional awards – Business Leader, to recognize businesses that demonstrate social responsibility; and
