cially closed the Canada Games, and with whom I spent the fi­nal day of the Games, makes this hon­our even more spe­cial to me.”

This recog­ni­tion not only high­lights Tom Allen’s out­stand­ing work as Chair of the Board and Ex­ec­u­tive Com­mit­tee of the Canada Sum­mer Games–Sher­brooke 2013, it also ac­knowl­edges his long-term con­tri­bu­tions to the fields of sport and ed­u­ca­tion.

When the Right Hon­ourable Roméo LeBlanc be­came Gov­er­nor Gen­eral of Canada, he was de­ter­mined to thank the thou­sands of car­ing peo­ple who give so much to their fel­low cit­i­zens, and who ask for noth­ing in re­turn. In 1995, the Gov­er­nor Gen­eral’s Car­ing Cana­dian Award was cre­ated.

The award’s em­blem rep­re­sents Cana­di­ans who self­lessly give of their time and en­ergy to oth­ers. The maple leaf sym­bol­izes the peo­ple of Canada and their spirit; the heart de­picts the open-heart­ed­ness of vol­un­teers; and the out­stretched hand por­trays bound­less gen­eros­ity.
