In celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary since Confederation, the Honourable Karina Gould, Member of Parliament for Burlington, will recognize outstanding members of our community with a special Sesquicentennial Citizenship Award.
Citizenship is not just about the rights conferred on Canadians but also what we give back and contribute to our community. During this milestone year, we have the opportunity to reflect on contributions to our community, society, and country by our fellow residents of Burlington. Big or small, people can have a meaningful impact in their communities. This award is designed to recognize a diverse range of ways that people influence their community in a positive manner.
Nominate someone for this special recognition who embodies citizenship in our community through their efforts, ideas and contributions that has made or is currently making Burlington and Canada a better place. This could be their commitment to community service, advocacy on an important issue, or the creation or development of a program or project that’s made a difference. We have many hidden heroes in our community, this award is to recognize them for their efforts.
The federal government has four themes for the celebration of Canada’s 150th festivities: youth, our majestic environment, diversity and reconciliation with our indigenous peoples.
Award recipients will receive a special limited edition 150th Anniversary pin, that contains a special piece of Canadiana, copper from the roofs of Parliament.
Nomination deadline: Friday, May, 26th, 2017 at 4:30pm
Award recipients will be notified by Monday, June 5th, 2017 and will receive their award on Sunday, June 11th during the City of Burlington’s special Canada 150 celebration at Spencer Smith Park. More details to come.
