Nominations are not accepted for couples or groups. If both members of a couple volunteer, they must be nominated separately and on their own merit.

Does the individual volunteer in Port Coquitlam?

Does the nomination fully describe the volunteer’s activities?
Don’t assume the Selection Committee knows the nominated volunteer or the extent of his or her activities. Be as detailed as possible and include all information that distinguishes your nominee from other community volunteers.

Checklist: Does the nomination provide an adequate biography of the volunteer?
Provide background or history of the person you are nominating, and any other relevant details about the individual that might have a bearing on the nomination.

Are there any supporting materials that could supplement the information provided?
Consider additional materials that may provide new information or insight. Do not submit the original documents, as they may not be returned.
