Each year the Municipality of the District of Yarmouth and the Town of Yarmouth recognize the extraordinary contributions of individuals and groups who volunteer their time and skills to provide services and programs in our communities.

Do you know a particularly outstanding volunteer or group of volunteers who have had a positive impact on their community? The District of the Municipality of Yarmouth and the Town of Yarmouth would like to honour the exceptional efforts of these people, children, and groups that donate their time and talents to offer services and activities around the community.

You have a wonderful chance to express your gratitude for the work volunteers perform to make their communities stronger, healthier, and more supportive by nominating someone for a Volunteer Award. Award recipients are recognized at a ceremony and banquet with Mayor Pam Mood, Warden John Cunningham, and Regional Council members during the Fall Season of 2024.

Please fill out a nomination form if you believe that a volunteer or group of volunteers should be recognized for the difference they have made.
