Nominations are open for Oakville’s Community Spirit Awards

This is your chance to celebrate a dedicated volunteer, group or business

Would you like to recognize a friend or colleague for their volunteer efforts? Nominations are now open for the Town of Oakville’s Community Spirit Awards. This is your chance to nominate an individual, group, organization or business that positively contributes to the life and spirit of our neighbourhoods and town.

“Every year Oakville residents spend countless hours volunteering their time to make our town better,” Oakville Mayor Rob Burton said. “We want to hear about these outstanding individuals and groups, tell their stories and celebrate their contributions to our town. I encourage all residents to nominate a friend, colleague, neighbour or group that they appreciate and admire.”

The Community Spirit Awards are presented annually to those who demonstrate ongoing leadership, dedication and involvement in Oakville. What better way to acknowledge and celebrate the contributions of someone you know than by nominating them for a Community Spirit Award.
