The new Volunteer Recognition Program

April 29, 2021
News Release

The City of Quesnel is proud to announce the launch of the Volunteer Recognition Program in May 2021. The program is designed to celebrate volunteers in a different way, in a way that is inclusive and will not exclude volunteers such as youth, groups, organizations and societies.  

Volunteers are extremely important to our community. Without the ongoing dedication of our many volunteers Quesnel would not be able to offer the incredible diversity of amenities, sports and cultural activities, events, and support programs that our multitude of volunteer organizations and individuals make possible all year.

Each month, the Volunteer Recognition Program will shine a spotlight upon a different category of service, honouring a dedicated group, society, and/or organization that has made great volunteer contributions and efforts in our community. This monthly recognition process will be broader and will be a great way for the community to come together and celebrate all volunteers throughout the entire year.

  • Culture (May)
  • Sports – Adults (June)
  • Sports – Children (July)
  • Community Environment (August)
  • Youth Programs (September)
  • Agriculture (October)
  • Service Organization (November)
  • Special Interest (December)
  • Health and Family (January)
  • Seniors (February)
  • Arts (March)

The City of Quesnel welcomes you to celebrate the people who make our community a more vibrant place to live through their personal investment of time and energy into the things they are passionate about. You have the power to nominate and identify those who will be celebrated. The recognition form can be found here.

The City of Quesnel thanks the past Quesnel Volunteer Citizen of the Year Committee and the Quesnel Cariboo Observer for their support and hard work throughout the years.
