Thunder Bay Power of Humanity Award

The Power of Humanity


The Canadian Red Cross plays a vital role in ensuring the wellbeing of Canadians everywhere in their time of need. From fires, floods or storms, to helping our communities cope, the Red Cross is there. Beyond aiding in disaster, the Red Cross touches the lives of people in Thunder Bay every day. Supporting vulnerable populations in the District of Thunder Bay, we provide programs for seniors, youths and important services like First Aid training.

In our daily work, the Red Cross engages with individuals, community partners and businesses that reflect the principle of humanity through partnerships or individual initiatives. These are the individuals and groups that the Power of Humanity Award seeks to recognize.

Power of Humanity Awards

The Thunder Bay Branch of the Canadian Red Cross participates in the Power of Humanity Award to celebrate those who have made a difference in our region. First awarded in 2005, we have recognized recipients who have reflected the Red Cross Principle of Humanity.

New nominations are now currently being taken to recognize another individual who is deeply engaged in improving the lives of the vulnerable whether across the street or around the world.
