This year, National Volunteer Week is April 21st to 27th.
Volunteers are on the front lines of all of our community services – community health care, heritage and arts, maintenance of green space, disaster relief, volunteer firefighting, minor sports – the list is endless. To celebrate their essential work, Community Development Halton is pleased to present you the first edition of COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AWARD. Recognize a VOLUNTEER TEAM from your organization whose collective work has made a significant change in their community.

Canadians have a rich history of volunteering and community involvement. The work of the volunteer is essential work. National Volunteer Week (NVW) pays tribute to the millions of Canadian volunteers who donate their time and energy.
NVW is the biggest celebration of volunteers and voluntarism Canada has and Volunteer Canada is taking the lead on the celebrations every year. NVW campaigns were developed to help organizations and individuals from coast to coast to coast deliver their own volunteer week celebrations.

April 6 - 12, 2014; April 12 - 18, 2015
2010 National Volunteer Week celebration and Volunteer Recognition Breakfast
