The Civic Recognition Awards Committee presented the 2020 Civic Recognition Award in the Group Category, prior to the February 22 Council meeting.

In light of COVID-19, each category winner will be presented their award during the next two regular Council meetings to keep the number of individuals in one room below the maximum capacity. 

The awards are given annually to recognize individuals who have made outstanding contributions for the betterment of the City.

Group Civic Recognition Category Winner

Farming for Health is the 2020 Group Civic Recognition award winner.

The Farming for Health Project was founded in 2013, with the objective to provide a visible symbol of the support the community would provide to a fundraising campaign for a new hospital, and to demonstrate that money could be raised while continuing to conduct normal operations.

The Farming for Health Project has raised approximately $1,492,000 towards the hospital and the purchase of medical equipment. The Project has brought together many businesses that are normally competitors who set that aside to improve our community, making it a better place to live and raise a family in, now and in the future. Farming for Health are ambassadors to other centres for what is possible when the community works together.
