In recognition of National Volunteer Week from April 16-22, 2023, where volunteers are celebrated across the country, the Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD) would like to thank volunteers for their contributions in our communities.
In rural areas, local volunteers support social and economic wellbeing and create a sense of belonging in their neighbourhoods. Whether it be for parks and public spaces, local community organizations, annual events, Search and Rescue groups, Emergency Support Services, fire departments, public libraries or many other functions, volunteer participation is crucial to the overall health of each community.
Within the TNRD boundaries, there are more than 65 unincorporated communities across 10 Electoral Areas, as well as 11 member municipalities and 25 First Nations, and volunteers are essential in these unique communities.
Thank you volunteers!
