Canada’s Volunteer Awards National Advisory Committee
We held a call for nominations from February 27 to March 17, 2017, to solicit nominations from across the country for the members of the Canada’s Volunteer Awards National Advisory Committee.
Selected from hundreds of nominations, the 11 members of the Canada’s Volunteer Awards National Advisory Committee include individuals with experience working or volunteering with the not-for-profit, voluntary and private sectors.
The Committee is composed of members who are external to government, have extensive knowledge of volunteering and the volunteer sector and are reflective of Canada’s diversity. The Committee reports directly to the Minister of Families, Children and Social Development.
The National Advisory Committee’s role is to recommend award recipients annually in partnership with the Government of Canada. Committee members ensure that Canadians are recognized for their contributions towards making a difference in their communities.
