Canada’s National Volunteer Week (April 16 to 22) annually celebrates the many acts of kindness that impact people and organizations all across the country.

In this special video tribute, meet four members of our university community who embody the spirit of Concordia and who have recently been honoured for exceptional commitments to volunteerism: Marco Ottoni, BComm 93; Marian Pinsky, MA 12; John Nathaniel Gertler, undergraduate student, School of Community and Public Affairs; and Lhalyn Valencia, undergraduate student, Department of Biology.

Thank you to all of our remarkable volunteers who selflessly give back for the benefit of Concordia’s students, faculty, staff and supporters, and for society as a whole.
