Volunteers are the life-blood of any non-profit organization. From the President and Board of Directors on down to our newest members, all make a contribution. Without them, we would not be able to accomplish our goals let alone carry on with our various projects. Over the past several years, many volunteers have come and gone, and we want to thank them all for the time and effort they have donated to the Canadian Aviation Museum. Without them, we would not be where we are today.

Beginning in 2011, a Volunteer of the Year will be named annually by the President, recognizing a person who has gone above and beyond in their contributions to the organization. Below are their names. Congratulations and a big “thank you” from all of us!
