38th Annual Virtual Volunteer Awards

Thursday, September 23, 2021

Virtual Celebration!

Deadline for nominations is
Monday May 24, 2021

Volunteer Manitoba and Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries are thrilled to host the Annual Volunteer Awards once again, which honour the contributions that individuals and groups have made toenrich the lives of Manitobans.

Volunteers have an enormous impact on the health and well-being of communities here in Manitoba. Did you know that in 2013, 12.7 million Canadians contributed over 2 billion hours without receiving a penny for their time? Imagine what our communities would look like if people stopped donating their time. How many resources and services would no longer be available to us? How many non-profit organizations would shut their doors?

Every year, thousands of volunteers across the province dedicate their time to the many non-profit and charitable organizations here in Manitoba. Without the help of these tireless individuals and groups, many of our non-profits, community groups and charities would no longer be able to provide supports and services to thousands of people across the province.

For over 40 years, Volunteer Manitoba has proudly promoted, supported, and celebrated community engagement in Manitoba, and we are thrilled to be able to recognize the hard work and commitment of Manitoba's volunteers at the 38th Annual Volunteer Awards Celebration!
