HRM Now Accepting Nominations for Annual Volunteer Awards

Each year Mayor Peter Kelly and Halifax Regional Council recognize the extraordinary contributions of individuals and groups who volunteer their time and skills to provide services and programs in HRM communities.  HRM is now accepting nominations for the 2012 Volunteer Awards.

Nominations are accepted in three categories: adult, youth (ages 13-19) and community group. Nomination criteria and applications can be found online at

Successful nominees will be notified in March 2012 and will be invited to attend a ceremony and reception taking place on April 18, 2012 when they will be officially presented with their award by Mayor Kelly and the councillor from their district. The award ceremony coincides with and is in celebration of National Volunteer Week, April 15-April 21, 2012.
