February 22, 2024

This award is sponsored in partnership between Edmonton & District Labour Council and United Way of the Alberta Capital Region. It will be presented to an outstanding union member at Labour Appreciation Night on May 10, 2024.

Please consider nominating someone by the April 15 DEADLINE. Your nominee must show a commitment to the union, and the community at large.

Nominee Criteria: 

  • Made a substantial contribution as a volunteer in the Alberta Capital Region in the human services field
  • Instrumental in the creation and/or provision of services/programs to better the Alberta Capital Region community needs
