Mayor's Volunteer Service Awards

City of Winnipeg Mayor Brian Bowman invites you to nominate deserving individuals or community groups for the Mayor's Volunteer Service Awards. The Mayor's Volunteer Service Awards were created to honour individuals, agencies and organizations that have made outstanding contributions to the City of Winnipeg 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 Mayor's Volunteer Service Awards will be presented by Mayor Bowman at Volunteer Manitoba's Annual Volunteer Awards Dinner on Thursday, April 11, 2019 at the Club Regent Event Centre. A total of five awards will be presented in this category.
