Over the years, more than 269,000 dedicated volunteers have been recognized through the Volunteer Service Award (VSA) program. Through this enormously successful program, thousands of volunteers will once again be recognized at 54 ceremony to be held across the province in 2017.
This award recognizes volunteers for providing committed and dedicated service to an organization. Volunteers are recognized by the length of time they have volunteered with one organization, ranging from five to 65 years of continuous service. Youth (24 years old and under) are recognized for two or more years of continuous service.
There are three different types of awards to consider at this time: the Ontario Medal for Young Volunteers, the Ontario Volunteer Services Awards, and the Lieutenant Governor's Community Volunteer Award for Students.
The deadlines to apply are due this month. To apply, please visit http://www.ontario.ca/page/honours-and-awards-volunteering.
"Brant is a stronger community because of our exceptional volunteers. Without their hard work and dedication, so many of the organizations and services that the people of Brant rely on simply would not exist. Let's honour our volunteers! Nominate someone you know today!" encourages MPP Dave Levac, who is a very strong supportor of volunteering.
