Ontario to Celebrate Dedication of Local Volunteers

March 20, 2013

Ontario Government Honouring Volunteers in Ceremonies Across the Province

The new Ontario government is celebrating the commitment and outstanding contributions of the more than 10,000 volunteers at 52 Volunteer Service Award ceremonies across the province.

The Ontario Volunteer Service Awards recognize people of all ages for continuous service to an organization. Certificates and trillium pins will be awarded for 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 40, 50 and 60 or more years of service. Youth will also be recognized for two or more years of volunteer service.

The first ceremony will kick off in Stratford on March 20, where 119 volunteers will be recognized. The final ceremony will be held in Toronto on June 27.

Recognizing the good work volunteers contribute to the province supports the new Ontario government’s efforts to build strong communities and a fair society.


  • Award recipients are nominated by the organizations they serve.
  • 2013 is the sixth year of the ChangetheWorld Ontario Youth Volunteer Challenge — Twenty five Ontario volunteer centres and organizations are participating, involving hundreds of communities.
  • More than six million Ontarians volunteer each year, contributing more than 860 million annual volunteer hours, equivalent to about 450,000 full-time jobs.
  • Ontario volunteer recognition programs include the June Callwood Outstanding Achievement Award and the Ontario Medal for Young Volunteers.



“Ontario’s volunteers are one of our province’s greatest assets. They are role models for all of us. I’m delighted to celebrate their dedication, hard work and outstanding leadership with Volunteer Service Awards.”
— Michael Coteau, Minister of Citizenship and Immigration

    line of defense, the T-lymphocytes.
    Reduced the relative risk of frequent colds and flu.
    Reduced the severity and length of cold and flu symptoms.
