Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries Community Changemakers Award

The Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries Community Changemakers Award promotes group volunteer efforts across Manitoba and recognizes an outstanding community group that has dedicated their time and resources to giving back to Manitobans.

The Annual Volunteer Awards Celebration is an opportunity to celebrate and honour those who give their time, energy, and talents to help build stronger communities across the province. Manitoba has the 2nd highest rate of volunteerism in Canada, and the province is rich with a culture of caring that volunteers helped to build.

For over a decade, Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries has proudly partnered with Volunteer Manitoba to celebrate passionate volunteers who are determined to make a difference. As the presenting sponsor of the awards celebration, MBLL is thrilled to continue our support of volunteerism across communities in Manitoba.
