Volunteer Recognition Awards
Every year, we ask Port Coquitlam residents to share which local volunteers make a world of difference by recognizing them with a nomination. Our Volunteer Recognition Awards event — an invitation-only night of fun, food and entertainment sponsored by FortisBC — is held during National Volunteer Week in April. All award nominees receive two tickets to the event and a commemorative pin. Award recipients also receive a personalized etched glass award and have their names added to the Volunteer Honour Roll at City Hall. The Port Coquitlam Volunteer Recognition Awards have honoured 130 recipients and hundreds more nominees since 1997.
Thank You to Our Sponsor
The City’s 2022 volunteer recognition efforts have been sponsored by FortisBC, which supported Port Coquitlam’s awards for 23 consecutive years.
