"Festival of Recognition"
Every year, our employee, volunteer and community awards celebrate organizations and individuals who are working to build a more inclusive society. These people make a difference in the lives of thousands of Canadians living with a disability.
We are now launching our Annual Volunteer Awards program for 2017. This is a great opportunity to recognize the people and organizations that make a difference in the lives of people with disabilities.
Our theme this year is "Volunteering - the best paying job in the world" and we are suggesting that you "Pay respect to those who do". Let’s take this opportunity to recognise all the people who make a difference and their contributions.
Nominations will be accepted until July 31, 2017.
