Ontario Celebrating Outstanding Contributions of Volunteers

TORONTO — The Ontario government is recognizing 6,650 community leaders through the 2024 Ontario Volunteer Service Awards. The annual award honours adult and youth volunteers for their outstanding contributions and continued service at organizations such as non-profits, schools, community centres, hospitals, libraries and community associations.

“Volunteers are the backbone of Ontario communities,” said Michael Ford, Minister of Citizenship and Multiculturalism. “Through the Ontario Volunteer Service Awards, we honour the outstanding volunteers who touch our lives and recognize their ongoing dedication and service to the well-being of their communities and our province.”

Recipients for 2024 dedicate their time to supporting a wide range of organizations and causes, including helping vulnerable people, hospitals, senior centres as well as local after-school, community and food security programs. These volunteers also participate as board members, help fundraise and strengthen the arts, culture, heritage and recreation sectors. This year’s recipients will be honoured during one of the 45 local award recognition ceremonies taking place across the province between April to July 2024.

For more information about the program or to submit a nomination for next year, visit the Ontario Volunteer Service Awards webpage. The deadline to nominate is November 15 each year. Nominations received after the deadline will be considered in the following year.
