Alberta Northern Lights Volunteer Recognition Program

Honouring the everyday heroes who are helping to make life better in communities across the province.

Everyday heroes

Every day, volunteers across the province are helping to improve the lives of Albertans and make our communities stronger. Volunteers are the heart of our community, whether they’re:

  • supporting recreation and cultural programs that enhance our daily experiences
  • working on the frontlines to deliver services to those in need or during times of crisis

The Alberta Northern Lights Volunteer Program gives these volunteers the recognition they deserve – and a chance for you to say ‘thank you.’

Individuals and groups from across the province can be nominated for the program if they:

  • contribute unpaid service to the community through formal or informal volunteering
  • demonstrate community spirit
  • serve as a role model for others in their community

Volunteers who are selected through the program will:

  • be profiled on the Alberta.ca website
  • receive a letter of recognition from the Minister of Culture and Status of Women
