Across the province, many dedicated volunteers offer their time and talents to make a daily difference in the lives of seniors. Whether they’re helping with groceries, teaching computer skills or providing companionship, these Albertans and organizations work to create inclusion and community for seniors.

The Minister’s Seniors Service Awards recognize the contributions these individuals and groups make to the lives of Alberta’s seniors.

“Seniors built our province and deserve to retire in dignity. We are so grateful for the dedication and compassion of volunteers in communities across Alberta in improving the well-being of seniors. Each year, I look forward to personally thanking Albertans who are making life better for seniors.”

Lori Sigurdson, Minister of Seniors and Housing
