Annick Bernatchez - Sovereign's Medal for Volunteers Recipient


GG Julie Payette: You come from British Columbia to Prince Edward Island, and you work in all spheres of society, not only with the poor, but with the young, the elderly. People in our armed forces, our veterans. And for that, we thank you.

MC: Annick Bernatchez. Annick Bernatchez coordinated the Relay for Life of her community, as well as a mini-relay for her students.

Annick: That's what it brings me... all the pride it brings me, you don't get paid when you volunteer, but it's so rewarding to volunteer. It's hard to explain. You get a lot of love from so many people around you. We help people and it comes back to us, it's a really nice exchange.
