The Minister’s Seniors Service Awards honour Albertans who improve the lives of seniors and their communities through outstanding service. These dedicated individuals, businesses and non-profit organizations use their time, talents and resources to protect seniors, improve their quality of life, support their everyday needs and help them stay engaged in their communities.

“Alberta is home to some incredible volunteers, businesses and non-profits. I am continually impressed by the quality of nominations we receive for the Minister’s Seniors Service Awards. This year’s recipients demonstrated the spirit of hard work and generosity Albertans are known for. Congratulations to the award recipients, and thank you for going above and beyond.”
