In honour of Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation, MP Pam Damoff will be awarding 15 special Canada 150 Sesquicentennial Pins to outstanding residents of her riding who positively impact and influence the community.
All residents of Oakville North-Burlington are invited to nominate a distinguished individual for the Sesquicentennial Citizenship Award. Successful nominees will be individuals who strive to make a positive difference in the community, whether it is through devoted advocacy or dedication to an organization, in one or more of four main categories: environmental stewardship, youth engagement, diversity and inclusion and reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples.
Successful nominees will be presented with a Canada 150 Sesquicentennial Pin given to MP Damoff by the Minister of Heritage Mélanie Joly. Consisting of the Canada 150 logo and a piece of the original copper which covered the roofs of Canada’s Parliament from 1918 to 1996, Sesquicentennial pins are a special keepsake to commemorate this important milestone in Canadian history. The unique pins were made with the participation of Under One Roof, an initiative of the Ottawa-Carleton Association for Persons with Developmental Disabilities, and crafted with the help of people with developmental disabilities.
Nominations will be accepted from Wednesday, September 20 to Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at 5pm EST. Fill out the form to nominate yourself/someone today. You will be asked to include a short paragraph or two outlining how the candidate being nominated meets the above criteria. Nominees can be of any age. All residents of Oakville North-Burlington will be considered. Oakville North-Burlington’s Canada 150 Sesquicentennial Citizenship Awards will be presented at a special ceremony on November 16, 2017.
