We are an organization of volunteers who believe in doing for the future of this country. We were born here, we came here from the outside world, we came as children or as young adults or as mature accomplished adults. We started small, we grew, we developed, we made a contribution to society and we feel that this effort will produce a valuable contribution to our future, to the future of our children and our grandchildren.
While the principles of volunteerism are important to make the process work, more than volunteer hours and volunteer efforts are required. That is why our sponsors who provide the funding to allow the process to function and the goals to be achieved deserve the recognition for their financial support.
There is a need for professional work on various fronts to establish the process and to guide it in a professional way. Our staff, hired to do the job, will identify with our mission and provide their enthusiasm to accomplish that mission.
Our advisory academic panel will establish evaluation criteria and guide a proposal through the stages of judging and team evaluation to select the winners by province, by age group and finally the annual winners to be recognized in the Annual Awards Ceremony in Ottawa attended by Government Officials and Private Industry Officials, our Sponsors and the Winners and their families.
