MAKING A DIFFERENCE AWARDS
Without our volunteers and continued support from the community, Multiple Births Canada (MBC) would not be able to do what it does. To recognize the contributions and achievements of dedicated volunteers, chapters, corporations, media, healthcare professionals and others, the Making a Difference Awards (MADA) were established in 1999 by Bonnie and Jim Schultz to honour MBC founder, Sheryl McInnes.
Awards are given out each year at our annual conference but nominations can be made at any time! Your nomination gets submitted to a MADA submissions committee, who rank and vote on the submissions and then award the recipients.
