MAPLE LEAF AWARD

MAPLE LEAF AWARD

NURSES SPECIALIZED IN WOUND, OSTOMY AND CONTINENCE RECOGNITION AWARD

The Nurses Specialized in Wound, Ostomy and Continence Recognition (NSWOC) Award is given to an NSWOC who has supported persons with an ostomy through involvement with his/her local Chapter/Peer Support Group activities and at national functions. The award also enables Ostomy Canada members to acknowledge their NSWOC for his/her support and services.

CHAIR’S AWARD

CHAIR’S AWARD

The Chair’s Award (renamed in 2022) can be bestowed on any member at any level of the organization or to an associate who the Chair of the Board deems to have demonstrated outstanding voluntary services on behalf of the organization.

UNSUNG HERO AWARD

UNSUNG HERO AWARD

The Unsung Hero Award is presented to individuals who work behind the scenes in any successful organization. They are also dedicated to Ostomy Canada but do not seek the limelight. In fact, they prefer to do their work and give their support in an unobtrusive manner. To be nominated for this award, an individual’s story needs to be published in the national newsletter, Ostomy Canada Connects. It is our goal to have at least one Unsung Hero recipient each quarter.

Names of Past Recipients

Beginning in 2023 we will post past recipients of these Awards dating back several years, a full historical listing will be made available upon request to awards@ostomycanada.ca
