The criteria for the Global Citizens Laureate.

UNA-Canada is proud to honour and pay special tribute to unique and ambitious models of leadership. We recognize our Laureates for their positive vision for a better world, starting in Canadian communities, and for their outstanding and generous commitment to children and youth, education, health and wellness and social growth and stability not only for individuals, but for whole communities. The recipient is recognized for their outstanding global citizenship in their community, for Canada and for the world by exemplifying how social responsibility and sterling leadership can be enormously successful in fostering inclusive societies and prosperity.
