The Nomination Period for the 36th Annual Volunteer Awards is now closed.


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 36th Annual Volunteer Awards Dinner.

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.

Thank You!

For thirty-six years, sponsors and supporters have been helping Volunteer Manitoba recognize the incredible contributions that volunteers make in our communities across the province. We are incredibly grateful for the support we have received to date, without which we would not be able to produce the Annual Volunteer Awards Dinner.

On behalf of the board and staff of Volunteer Manitoba, thank you to this year's Volunteer Awards Dinner sponsors!
