Toronto is recognizing 25 individuals from across the city with Legacy Awards for their exceptional contributions as volunteers. The Legacy Awards are hosted by Volunteer Toronto, Canada’s largest volunteer centre, and correspond with National Volunteer Week, held from April 15-21, 2018.

The impact of volunteers in Canada is exceptional—the equivalent of one million full-time jobs a year,” says Camara Chambers, Executive Director of Volunteer Toronto. “Volunteers are part of the fabric of Toronto, and we must recognize how truly meaningful their contributions are—from helping provide a meal to someone in need to fundraising thousands for non-profits—every volunteer makes a special impact in our community.
