Statement by the Prime Minister of Canada on National Volunteer Week 
Prime Minister Stephen Harper today issued the following statement to mark National Volunteer Week, taking place from April 12 to 18, 2015:

“This week is National Volunteer Week, the largest celebration of citizen participation in Canada. It provides us with an opportunity to thank and pay tribute to our volunteers for their selfless and tireless dedication and contributions.

“Every year from coast to coast to coast, millions of Canadians volunteer close to two billion hours – the equivalent of approximately one million full-time jobs – in an effort to help out family, friends, and those in need to better our neighbourhoods and communities. Volunteers are the lifelines for our hospitals, shelters, not-for-profit organizations, and countless other parts of society that deliver important programs and services, and make a profound and lasting impact in our lives.

“Canada has been greatly enriched by the service of volunteers. That is why our Government created the Prime Minister’s Volunteer Awards, which every year honours the exceptional contributions of those who make a difference in their communities. The call for the 2015 nominations for the Prime Minister’s Volunteer Awards will be launched on April 13, 2015, and will run until June 30, 2015.

“During National Volunteer Week, I salute all volunteers for their invaluable contributions that make our great country a better place to live. I also encourage all Canadians to use their talents and get involved to continue to make our society even more generous, caring and supportive.
