The call for nominations period is now closed.

Thank you for your interest in the Canada’s Volunteer Awards’ National Advisory Committee. Nominations are currently being assessed.

Members of the National Advisory Committee will be announced in spring/summer 2017.

About the National Advisory Committee

The National Advisory Committee for the Canada’s Volunteer Awards is composed of 15 members who are external to government, have extensive knowledge of volunteering and the volunteer sector and are reflective of Canada’s diversity. Members will include representatives of the community not-for-profit, voluntary, and private sectors and will advise and assist the Minister of Families, Children and Social Development on all matters relating to the selection of Award recipients.

Members of the Committee will be asked to review documents, assess nominations, to share views and make recommendations to the Minister of Families, Children and Social Development. The Department will provide facilitation and administrative support. Members will also be expected to engage their networks and support the promotion of the program.

Members will not be financially compensated while conducting the Advisory Committee’s business; however, if the meeting is on site, accommodations and travel costs will be covered when attending meetings or engagement activities outside of their home community, in accordance with the Treasury Board’s policies and directives. All travel and accommodation arrangements will be made by the Government of Canada. The Government of Canada will book travel, reserve hotel rooms and provide meals during Advisory Committee meetings. Accommodations for special needs or disabilities will also be provided as needed. Following the completion of the selection process, the Government will announce the final membership of the National Advisory Committee in spring 2017.
