Mayor's Volunteer Service Award

Call for Nominations

City of Winnipeg Mayor Brian Bowman invites you to nominate deserving individuals or community groups for the Mayor's Volunteer Service Awards. These awards have been created to honour individuals, agencies and organizations that have made outstanding contributions to our City through volunteer service.

"Volunteers are key to a strong community," said Mayor Brian Bowman. "Their generosity in providing time, talents, skills, and goodwill not only helps build a stronger City, but also makes Winnipeg a place we can all be proud to call home. I'm honoured to celebrate citizens who make our city better through volunteerism."

The Awards, which are the result of a cooperative effort between the Office of the Mayor and Volunteer Manitoba, will be presented by Mayor Bowman at the Annual Volunteer Awards Dinner on Thursday, April 19, 2018 at the Victoria Inn Hotel & Convention Centre.
