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."

Eligibilty Criteria

Any individual living in Winnipeg, or any Winnipeg-based agency or organizations who are engaged in volunteer activities that benefit the community may be nominated for an award.

Nominees should have demonstrated one or more of the following characteristics:

  • Imagination or extraordinary effort in volunteer activities
  • Long-term commitment to improving community life
  • Leadership or enthusiasm that energizes other members of the community

Please note, City of Winnipeg employees are not eligible for a Mayor's Volunteer Service Award.
