The Caring Canadian Award was established in 1995 by former governor general Romeo LeBlanc to honour those he called "the unsung heroes of our country." It is intended for individuals whose unpaid, voluntary contributions behind the scenes provide extraordinary care or help to individuals or groups in the community.
