Governor General Announces 129 Caring Canadian Awards

July 22, 1999

OTTAWA - Governor General Roméo LeBlanc today announced the names of 129 recipients of the Governor General's Caring Canadian Award.

The Governor General's Caring Canadian Award is presented to individuals and groups whose unpaid, voluntary contributions provide extraordinary help or care to people in the community. Recipients have served over a number of years and normally have not been recognized previously by a national or provincial honour.

To date, 402 Governor General's Caring Canadian Awards have been awarded since the program's launch in 1996.

The Award consists of a framed certificate and a lapel pin for everyday wear. The award symbol represents Canadians who selflessly give of their time and energy to others. Presentations are made by the Governor General in communities across Canada as his travels permit or by a designate of His Excellency.
