Citizen Recognition Program: Mayor and Council's Toast of Champions

Do you know an exceptional individual or group that goes above and beyond to make Wood Buffalo a better place to live? The Citizen Recognition Program was created to acknowledge those who make a significant contribution or positive impact on our communities. This is the sixth annual Citizen Recognition Program, and it’s your chance to say “thank you” to all those who work hard to improve our community.

Nominations for the 2017 Citizen Recognition Program are now being accepted!

Watch: Mayor Melissa Blake invites you to make a nomination

Residents who have lived in Wood Buffalo for at least 12 consecutive months are eligible to be nominated for the Program. Nominations are based on overall achievement, impact and/or contribution to the region. There is no age limit for nominees to be eligible. Individuals and groups may be nominated every year, but may only receive this special recognition once in their lifetime.

Each nominee, their nominator and special guests will be invited to the annual ceremony in January 2018. All nominees will be celebrated for their outstanding contributions, and Mayor and Councillors will select up to eight recipients from all nominations to receive special recognition at the event.

The nomination deadline is September 30, 2017.
