Canada’s Volunteer Awards program
Canada’s Volunteer Awards (CVA) recognizes volunteers, not-for-profit organizations, social enterprises and businesses for their contributions across the country. The Awards highlight the many ways that volunteering strengthens communities.
Call for nominations
You can submit nominations from February 15 to April 26, 2023 Eastern Standard Time.
Regional reviewers play an important role in assessing eligible nominations of volunteers, businesses and not-for-profit organizations. They identify the top-ranked nominations for assessment by the National Advisory Committee (NAC).
National Advisory Committee
Members of the National Advisory Committee play a leading role in assessing top-ranked nominations. They advise and assist the Minister of Families, Children and Social Development on all matters related to the selection of award recipients and support the promotion of the program throughout their term.
