The search is on Canada's most caring person.

In celebration of National Caregiver Day on Saturday, Canada Cares opened its nominations for the 2014 Canada Cares Awards, where one lucky caregiver can win $10,000.

The nominations are open to both part-time and full-time caregivers, and from all different types of care.

"Nobody's journey is the same," said Caroline Tapp-McDougall, chair of Canada Cares. "Some people have heart related issues, some people who have dementia reared issues, and some that have five kids who are sharing the care and some people have no one but it's still a journey."

In total, 10 caregivers will be recognized, with five family and five professional caregivers being recognized in four regions: Western, Central, Atlantic and Northern Canada.
