For 25 years, awards have recognized individuals, businesses and non-profit organizations that support seniors, lead the way for improved services and contribute to strong communities.
In a news release, the Alberta government said nine awards will be presented to individuals, businesses and non-profit organizations based on volunteerism, philanthropy, innovation and outstanding service. The deadline for nominations is Nov. 15. Selected recipients will be celebrated at an in-person ceremony in March 2024.
“We want to acknowledge the local heroes and helpers who dedicate their time and energy to support seniors. These people are in our communities, our workplaces and even just down the block. They deliver groceries, help seniors get to their appointments, make our communities more accessible and so much more," said Jason Nixon, Minister of Seniors.
Albertans can submit nominations online, through mail and email. See alberta.ca for more.
