Nominate a “local hero,” who helps support seniors for a 2023 Minister’s Seniors Service Award.
If you know of an individual, business or non-profit organization that goes the extra mile to support seniors, by helping them with grocery shopping, driving them to appointments, or mowing their lawns, they can be nominated for a provincial recognition.
Nine awards will be presented to individuals, businesses and non-profit organizations. Nominations are assessed based on volunteerism, philanthropy, innovation and outstanding service.
The deadline for nominations is Nov. 15. Winners will be celebrated at an in-person ceremony in March 2024.
“Seniors across our province deserve to live vibrant lives with dignity and respect. We want to acknowledge the local heroes and helpers who dedicate their time and energy to support seniors,” said Jason Nixon, Minister of Seniors, Community and Social Services.
The Minister’s Seniors Service Awards have been given out to shine a spotlight on dedicated Albertans for the past 25 years.
