Default Governor Generalís Caring Canadian Award (1995-2016)

Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award (1995-2016)

The Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award was created in 1995 by the Right Honourable Romťo LeBlanc to recognize the unsung heroes who volunteer their time, their efforts and a great deal of their lives to helping others, and who ask for nothing in return. The program was replaced by the Medal for Volunteers in 2016.

Description of the award

Caring Canadian Award Pin
The Caring Canadian Award consists of a letter, certificate and a lapel pin presented to recipients by the governor general or by lieutenant-governors, territorial commissioners, mayors, members of the Order of Canada or partner organizations.

The award’s emblem represents Canadians who selflessly give of their time and energy to others. The maple leaf symbolizes the people of Canada and their spirit; the heart depicts the open-heartedness of volunteers; and the outstretched hand portrays boundless generosity. The helping hand and heart support the maple leaf. The blue and gold colours, which appear on the viceregal flag, indicate the award’s connection with the governor general.

On another Forum we had talked about the medal that replaced the Caring Canadian Award (CCA), the Soveriegns Medal for Volunteers. I thought that I would post the CCA here as a reference. Who knows, you may see one in a pins and badges shadow box at a flea market someday.

Does anyone have one to show us the back?
