Community Recognition Awards

Earlier this year, I hosted my virtual New Year’s Levee & Community Recognition Awards. It was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate what people are doing to help others at this difficult time and to make our community in Etobicoke Centre even better. Thank you to all who attended and joined us – over 350 of you! – as we welcomed the new year and celebrated those making a difference in our community.

Over 70 awards were presented in the following categories:
1. COVID Heroes;
2. Outstanding Volunteer Service to the Community;
3. Outstanding Volunteer Service to Seniors;
4. Outstanding Volunteer Service to the Community by Youth;
5. Outstanding Service by Employees or Professional Staff.

I am honoured that, in the category of COVID Heroes, we were able to recognize and celebrate the service of two Canadian Armed Forces personnel who served at Eatonville Care Centre in Etobicoke Centre last year providing care for our most vulnerable seniors. The professionalism, sense of duty and capabilities of the Canadian Armed Forces personnel who served in long-term care homes, including in Etobicoke Centre, saved lives.

Congratulations to all the recipients! Thank you for all that you are doing for our community!
