Each year we dedicate a special time to honour citizens who volunteer their time and talents to worthy causes across our country, region and local community.

We want to acknowledge the incredible efforts of volunteers across Halton and say THANK YOU for shaping new paths and keep growing, much like roots that make our communities strong. National Volunteer Week is when we can all take time to recognize volunteers and celebrate the power of volunteerism in our community.

 

These awards nominations are open to all nonprofit, voluntary and grassroots organizations providing services in Halton.

Thank you for your submissions! Nominations are now closed.

Volunteers reach out beyond themselves, to engage in kindness and caring for others. People from all walks of life engage in volunteerism for a variety of reasons some of which are: to tackle the issues of poverty, the environment, homelessness, to promote social inclusion, and most importantly, to be the voice and hands of compassion and hope.  

Volunteer Halton is privileged to witness like-minded individuals and groups who identify the need and move into action. Volunteers are everyday individuals who answer the call for change. Many come together as strangers, connect through a cause, and end up with lasting friendships. Volunteer Halton recognizes the wonderful volunteers who come from different backgrounds and experiences from all ages to be the roots of strong communities. ~~~ Ann Coburn - Director, Volunteer Halton

Volunteers are on the front lines of all of our community services – health care, heritage and arts, maintenance of green space, disaster relief, volunteer firefighting, minor sports – the list is endless. Community Development Halton/Volunteer Halton is pleased to present you the awards below, to celebrate their essential work that makes Halton community strong.
