Nomination Guidelines

The Volunteer of the Year award, established in 2006, honours one person per year who has made an outstanding volunteer contribution to the Canadian magazine industry. Candidates must have contributed at least 10 years of volunteer service to the industry and a commitment to Magazines Canada.

You may nominate as many candidates for the Volunteer of the Year award as you like. The recipient of the award is chosen by a committee of long-standing magazine professionals. The Volunteer of the Year is celebrated in a special ceremony at MagNet: Canada’s Magazine Conference and will receive a $500 gift certificate and a plaque. There will also be a permanent display of award winners at Magazines Canada and in an Awards section on the Magazines Canada website.
