45th Annual Provincial Volunteer Awards

Volunteers touch the lives of all Nova Scotians in so many ways and contribute significantly to building our communities, connecting people to one another and providing valuable programs and services. Many families have been doing this collectively in their communities for years. Youth are becoming the changemakers and are inspiring others to do the same.

The 45th Annual Provincial Volunteer Awards will be an exceptional way for the Province of Nova Scotia to say, 'thank you' to the many volunteers that contribute to the well-being and vitality of our communities every day.

Nominations forms to nominate a youth or family can be found on the Provincial Volunteer Awards website: http://novascotia.ca/NonProfitSector/ProvincialVolunteerAwards/

You can print the forms or complete the process online.

Nominations close February 25th, 2018

Outdoor recreational facilities like trails, playgrounds and sports fields provide opportunities for Nova Scotians of all ages to be active and to have fun in their own communities. The Liberal Government in Nova Scotia supports a healthy, active lifestyle, and continues to invest in communities across the province.

Most recently, $1.8 million has been provided to upgrade facilities in 65 communities, and many of those are in rural Nova Scotia. In fact, $250 000 of that investment comes to the Fundy Region, which includes Colchester County. These grants help community groups, Municipalities and other not-for-profit organizations develop facilities to increase public participation in sport and physical recreation. Some examples include renovations to buildings, developing and/or maintaining walking trails and building and upgrading fields for sport and recreation.

 

Recipients in Colchester County include:

West Colchester United Arena – new Zamboni

Tatamagouche and Area Trails Association – trail improvements

Brookfield Elementary School - Natural Playground

Camp Evangeline - new playground

Victoria Park - playground upgrades

Fundy Trail Snowmobile Club – clubhouse expansion

These grants are available through the Recreation Facility Development Program…a provincial program available from the Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage.

I want to congratulate those communities that will benefit from our Government’s investment and thank the many volunteers and not-for-profit organizations who recognized a need in their community and who worked hard to prepare a successful application. Community activity, and community volunteers are so very important in rural Nova Scotia, and I am proud to be part of the Liberal Government that recognizes and supports these communities.
