The deadline for nominations for the 2014 Paul Yuzyk Award for Multiculturalism has been extended to March 8, 2014.
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 in communities across Canada who have made exceptional contributions to multiculturalism and integration of newcomers. One award is given annually, for either Lifetime Achievement or Outstanding Achievement.
Award recipients receive a certificate signed by the Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism, and are asked to nominate a registered not-for-profit Canadian organization or association to receive a grant of $20,000.
We invite you to get more information about the eligibility of the Award and nominate an individual or a group who you think deserves to be recognized for exceptional contributions to multiculturalism and integration of newcomers.
