Toronto wants to thank deserving volunteers
The City of Toronto wants to “shine the light” of appreciation on local residents who are making a noteworthy contribution to local communities through their work as volunteers. Nominations for the 2007 edition of the City’s annual Community Service Volunteer Awards are open. The nomination deadline is August 31.

Everyone is eligible to nominate a friend or colleague who lives in Toronto for recognition at an awards ceremony that will be held at City Hall later this year. Volunteers play a vital role in local communities’ well-being and in Toronto’s overall quality of life. They also help to motivate and provide leadership for other volunteers.

Making a nomination simply involves describing how a resident’s volunteer work has benefited the community. The nominator can, for example, describe the person’s role in a project that has helped a neighbourhood or community, explaining why the nominee deserves recognition. It could involve bringing attention to someone’s long record of volunteer service.

The nomination form, information about eligibility, and criteria for the 2007 Community Service Volunteer Awards are available on the City’s website at The nomination form is also included in brochures that are available at libraries, civic centres and community centres throughout the City.

Toronto is Canada’s largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. It is the economic engine of Canada and one of the greenest and most creative cities in North America. In the past three years, Toronto has won more than 50 awards for quality and innovation in delivering public services. Toronto’s government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.
