The Inspiration Awards were established in 2012 to recognize Albertans who demonstrate a commitment to ending family violence in their communities.
Every November during Family Violence Prevention Month, up to three recipients in each of the categories of youth, adults, seniors, groups/organizations, government and businesses receive awards to honour their leadership. One individual may also receive a Lifetime Achievement Award to acknowledge a long-term commitment to ending family violence in Alberta.
Nominations are accepted any time and remain active for a period of three years.
