Care group searches for ‘Most Caring Canadian’

Submissions are open for all award categories — family caregiver, professional caregiver, business and community

Canada Cares finished the first leg of their cross-country search for “the most caring Canadian” in Victoria last weekend, but are still looking for nominees.

Submissions are open for all award categories — family caregiver, professional caregiver, business and community — until Sept. 15, and can be sent online or by mail.

Canada Cares is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping the estimated five million Canadians caring for a family member.

Vouchers and gift cards will be given out to caregivers, and a MV-1 — a $40,000 wheelchair-accessible vehicle will be given to the person or organization that demonstrates the greatest need.
