In recognition of the many, many volunteers who help make our local communities such special places to live, work and play, the Deep River & District Community Foundation (DRDCF), with the support of a generous donor, has established “Deep River & District Outstanding Volunteer Recognition Award”.  This one-time award is available to all residents of Deep River, Laurentian Hills, Head, Clara and Maria, and Rapide-des-Joachims who have made and are making a significant contribution to their community.  More than one recipient of the award may be named, based on merit.  Award recipients will be announced in local newspapers and the DRDCF website (  The award will be presented at a public event to be scheduled at a later time.  In addition to the public recognition, award winners will receive a jacket with an inscription of the Award’s name.

Nominations must include:

  • The name and address of the individual making the nomination.

  • A biographical sketch of the nominee.

  • The nominee's specific contributions to the community, ideally over several years – or a lifetime, and how those contributions have made a positive difference for its residents.

  • Although nominees from any local club or association are welcomed, nominations for those who have made significant contributions to charitable non-profit organizations are particularly encouraged.

Although not required, one or more additional letters of support may strengthen the nomination.


Nominees must not have personally benefited from their activities, nor should their contributions be considered part of their normal employment or job responsibilities.

Nominations must be sent to and received no later than July 19, 2021.  Nominations will be judged by an independent panel.

The Deep River & District Community Foundation looks forward to receiving many nominations for this Award.
