Honour a change-maker who inspires you by their positive contributions to their communities and the world.

Every day Canadians make extraordinary impacts in our world—from spearheading fundraising campaigns to founding their own social justice organizations. They are raising awareness of issues they’re passionate about, being a voice for the voiceless and spreading incredible change within their communities and across the globe.

In 2005, brothers and ME to WE co-founders Craig and Marc Kielburger teamed up with Canadian Living magazine to celebrate these true heroes by creating the first ever Canadian Living ME to WE Awards.

The awards are divided into six categories:

Youth in Action (13-17)

Youth in Action (12 and under)

In the Community

Social Action


Free The Children Youth(13-18)

Prizes for the first five categories include a $1,000 (CAD) donation to a registered Canadian charity of the winner’s choice, a commemorative award, coverage in an issue of Canadian Living magazine and coverage on www.metowe.com. The winner of the Free The Children Youth category will win a ME to WE Trip! Read the terms and conditions for more information.


Winners will be notified by May 27, 2016 and will be announced publicly at WE Day Toronto 2016 and in the October issue of Canadian Living Magazine.
