The City of Whitehorse values the importance of volunteers and their contributions to our community. Since 1987, it has celebrated and publicly acknowledged outstanding volunteers by providing an opportunity for residents to recognize and appreciate volunteers.

Each spring, we invite organizations to nominate an individual as a candidate for this honour. The nominee should be someone who has made a significant contribution to an organization or to the community as a whole.

The deadline to submit a nomination is Sunday, March 17, 2024. Nominations can be submitted through whitehorse.ca/volunteeroftheyear.

The City of Whitehorse has been recognizing volunteers since 1987.

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, gain new opportunities, connect with the community and have some fun. Come be a part of this state of the art facility! There are many different opportunities at the Canada Games Centre.
