Honouring Volunteers Who Help Seniors Never Gets Old

Many Albertans volunteer their time, skills and energy to improve the lives of seniors across our province.
Now it’s time for Albertans to nominate volunteers in our communities for a 2015 Minister’s Seniors Service Award and recognize those who make a difference.

“These dedicated volunteers enhance the quality of life for our province’s seniors by providing transportation, preparing meals, organizing outings and offering companionship. My colleagues and I want to thank these special people and organizations for giving so much to seniors. Please take the time to nominate those who are making contributions to improve the lives of Alberta’s seniors. It is a great way to show your appreciation.”

~ Jeff Johnson, Minister of Seniors

For 18 years, Minister’s Seniors Service Awards have celebrated individuals and organizations that serve seniors in many valuable ways.

Volunteers of all ages are eligible. Go to seniors.alberta.ca for more information and to complete a nomination form for an individual or organization. The nomination deadline is February 27.

Those nominated will be honoured at community celebrations throughout the province during Seniors’ Week (June 1-7). Award recipients will be recognized in a special ceremony in the fall.
