Dear members and supporters of Public Interest Alberta,

Nominate someone you know for the 2012 PIA Public Interest Award! The deadline for nominations is May 11, 2012.

Public Interest Alberta would like to say thank you to all of the advocates who make the public good their priority. Facing the political obstacles in this province makes a tough job for any citizen. We can't do our work without your work, so every year Public Interest Alberta recognizes two citizens or organizations for their work in the public interest.


The PIA Public Interest Award has been created in order to give public recognition to those making important contributions in promoting the public interest in Alberta.


The award will be given to up to two individuals and/or organizations making an exemplary contribution in one or more of the following ways:

  • promoting effective cooperation among individuals and organizations in one or more of the above areas
  • working to strengthen Alberta’s public sphere and public interest in any other effective manner.


The Board of Public Interest Alberta will make the selection(s) and the award(s) will be presented at PIA’s Eight Annual General Meeting on June 2, 2012. The successful nominee(s) will be advised prior to the AGM to ensure their availability to accept the award.
