2017 Volunteer Halton Recognition Awards

Volunteers are on the front lines of all of our community services: community health care, heritage and arts, maintenance of green space, disaster relief, volunteer firefighting, minor sports, and the list is endless... 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.

We are pleased to present you the 2017 edition of the Cheers to Volunteers Awards, Community Volunteer Awards and Walter Mulkewich Community Development Award (for groups) in celebration of National Volunteer Week, April 23 - 29, 2017. These nominations are open to all nonprofit, voluntary and grassroots organizations in Halton.


Thank you for your nominations!
