The Paul Yuzyk Award for Multiculturalism commemorates the late Senator Yuzyk’s pioneering legacy in establishing multiculturalism as one of the fundamental characteristics of Canadian heritage and identity.
The award recognizes individuals, groups of individuals and organizations in communities across Canada who have made exceptional contributions to multiculturalism and the integration of newcomers.
Beginning in 2015, three awards will be given annually – one in each of the following categories:
Award recipients receive a certificate signed by the Minister for Multiculturalism, and are asked to nominate a registered not-for-profit Canadian organization or association to receive a grant of $10,000 in their name.
We invite you to find out more about the eligibility requirements for the Paul Yuzyk Award and how to nominate an individual, group of individuals, or organization you think deserves to be recognized for exceptional contributions to multiculturalism and the integration of newcomers.
