Governor General Announces 42 Caring Canadian Awards

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - April 3, 2007) - Her Excellency the Right Honourable Michaelle Jean, Governor General of Canada, announced today the names of 42 recipients of the Governor General's Caring Canadian Award.

Created in 1996 by the Right Honourable Romeo LeBlanc, the 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.

The names and citations of the recipients follow.

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 will be made at a later date by a dignitary designated by the Governor General or, on occasions, by the Governor General when she travels in communities across Canada.
