Ottawa-Vanier Volunteer Recognition

  • Community Update

Nominate a volunteer in your community!

Your Ottawa-Vanier elected representatives would like to honour members of the community for their volunteerism. Do you know someone that you feel deserves to be recognized for their dedication to the Ottawa-Vanier Community? Does this person exemplify the spirit of what it is to be a volunteer?

Do you feel like this person has:
– Made a significant contribution through their volunteer efforts?
– Made a meaningful impact in the community?
– Demonstrated social responsibility and leadership by giving back to the community?

If someone comes to mind, no matter how big or small their contribution to their community; we’d like you to tell us about them. Once your nominations have been received, we will identify the recipients, and then your Councillor, our Member of Parliament and Member of Provincial Parliament will honour them with a personalized certificate. We want each recipient to be properly acknowledged for their achievements, have the chance to accept their certificate, speak to their nomination, and what/where they volunteer.

With Covid restrictions in place, we will be hosting a Zoom evening event in late May 2021 to honour the recipients. Links will be shared with the selected nominees shortly before the event.

Please submit your nominations to your ward councillor by 4:00 pm on Monday, May 3rd, 2021. There is no word limit to the nomination.

Depending on how many responses we receive, we may not be able to provide a certificate to each person. By no means does that it in any way lessen the importance and value of the nominee’s contributions.

Thank you, and we look forward to reading your submissions.
