We can all agree 2020 has been a year like no other. The pandemic has changed how we live our daily lives, and we know seniors have been deeply affected. But in this time of crisis, Albertans refuse to let seniors down.

That is why we made changes to the Minister’s Seniors Service Awards this year. We knew we needed to recognize those who have given so much of their time and effort, to help seniors throughout the pandemic.

On December 15, 2020, I was proud to announce nine outstanding award recipients at the virtual awards ceremony:

  • Liza Bouchard
  • Jenna Jepson
  • Corinna Roth-Beacome
  • Surinderjit Singh Plaha
  • Bethany Care Foundation
  • Ismaili Muslim Community
  • The Joy Four All Project of Ever Active Schools
  • Ladybug Support Services
  • Servus Credit Union

These Albertan individuals, non-profits, and businesses made it their mission to keep seniors connected, supported, and safe despite a global health crisis. They found creative ways to deliver services; dropped off food, prescriptions and cheques; took extra time to check in; and were advocates for seniors through it all.

To learn more about these outstanding Albertans, visit the Minister’s Seniors Service Awards. To those recipients, thank you and congratulations.
