The Office of the Veterans Ombudsman is currently looking for outstanding Canadians who have worked tirelessly for veterans of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and their families, for the 2017 Veterans Ombudsman Commendation.
The Veterans Ombudsman is accepting nominations of individuals, organizations or groups who have gone above and beyond for the veteran community for the Veterans Ombudsman Commendation.
Nominations are accepted under four categories: national organization or group; local organization or group; individual; and lifetime contribution, dedicated to those individuals who have a life-long dedication and significant contribution in supporting or advocating for veterans and their families.
“Recognizing the people who dedicate much of their time to helping Veterans in need is very important to me, so I urge you to take the time to please complete a nomination for those deserving special recognition.” said Guy Parent, Veterans Ombudsman.
The commendation was established in 2010 to recognize groups or individuals who work on behalf of the veteran community.
The Office of the Veterans Ombudsman requires that nominations include a complete nomination form and a summary of why the nominee is deserving of the award.
The deadline for submissions is March 31.
