Minister’s Seniors Service Awards

Since 1998, the Minister’s Seniors Service Awards have recognized outstanding Albertans of any age who volunteer their time to make a difference in the lives of seniors.

In 2016, Alberta Seniors and Housing received 63 nominations: 50 individuals and 13 organizations. All nominees were at recognized Community Celebrations held in Calgary, Edmonton, Lethbridge, Red Deer and Whitecourt during Seniors' Week, June 6-12.

Award recipients will be recognized at a ceremony and dinner in the fall at Government House. Seniors and Housing Minister Lori Sigurdson has selected the individuals and organizations that will be honoured this year based on the recommendations of a review panel comprised of ministry staff and chaired by Edmonton-Whitemud MLA Dr. Bob Turner. The recipients have been informed of their selection in advance of a formal announcement of the 2016 Awards recipients later in the summer.

Congratulations to all nominees!
