Recognizing Excellence

Ordinary people doing extraordinary things - People, in communities across Nova Scotia who because of a chosen career and/or a desire to give back to their community, do extraordinary things for others each and every day.

Cancer Care Nova Scotia’s Excellence Awards were introduced to recognize the commitment of ordinary Nova Scotians, each doing their bit to improve cancer prevention, treatment and care for Nova Scotia patients and families.

CCNS is accepting nominations for three awards in two categories:
-- Leadership excellence
-- Excellence in patient care (two awards). One award will recognize health professional contributions and one will highlight the valuable role of volunteers.

The deadline for nominations is September 21, 2015. Nomination details are available at or by calling 1-866-599-2267.
