We would be nowhere without the immeasurable contributions of our amazing Green volunteers — whether they are running for office, serving on Federal Council, or organizing outreach events in their local communities! We are excited to seize upon this rare opportunity to come together at Convention 2018 to celebrate a few of our many outstanding volunteers!
The Volunteer Awards recognize and honour the people and groups who are the heart and soul of our Green vision.

Sunrise Awards (3)
These awards recognize EDAs that have shown exceptional growth and improvement over the past two years.
