August 28, 2023: For 25 years, the Minister's Seniors Service Awards have recognized individuals, businesses and non-profit organizations that support seniors, lead the way for improved services and contribute to strong communities.

“Seniors across our province deserve to live vibrant lives with dignity and respect. We want to acknowledge the local heroes and helpers who dedicate their time and energy to support seniors. These people are in our communities, our workplaces and even just down the block. They deliver groceries, help seniors get to their appointments, make our communities more accessible and so much more.”
Jason Nixon, Minister of Seniors, Community and Social Services

Nine awards will be presented to individuals, businesses and non-profit organizations. Nominations are assessed based on volunteerism, philanthropy, innovation and outstanding service. The deadline for nominations is November 15. Selected recipients will be celebrated at an in-person ceremony in March 2024.

"Unison has a half-century of history when it comes to serving and working with the older adults of our community. We know how incredibly vital seniors are to the overall success and well-being of this great province. We're beyond pleased the Government of Alberta is taking time to recognize and applaud exceptional seniors who have challenged preconceptions and truly made a difference in the lives of others."
Larry Mathieson, president and CEO, Unison
