In honour of Canada’s 150th anniversary since Confederation, Member of Parliament Bob Bratina is looking for nominations for 15 distinguished individuals from the riding of Hamilton East – Stoney Creek to be presented with MP Bratina`s Sesquicentennial Citizenship Award. As we celebrate this milestone year, we have the opportunity to reflect on the contributions that have been made to our community by outstanding citizens in Hamilton and Stoney Creek who often go unnoticed.
Successful nominees will be individuals who strive to make a positive difference in the community by working to help those in need, advocating for an important cause, promoting a diverse and inclusive Hamilton, or inspiring local youth. Whether it be through their devoted advocacy for an issue or their dedication to an organization that makes both Hamilton and Canada a better place, Hamilton is home to many incredible individuals who deserve to be recognized for their hard work.
Selected nominees will be presented with a Canada 150 Sesquicentennial Pin given to MP Bratina 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, these Sesquicentennial pins are a special keepsake to commemorate this important milestone in Canadian history. Likewise, these pins were made with the participation of the Ottawa-Carleton Association for Persons with Developmental Disabilities.
Nominations will be accepted from June 1 to June 22, 2017, and the chosen candidates will be presented with their pins at an awards ceremony in the evening of June 29. We invite everyone to join us on June 29 to commemorate the achievements of Hamilton East – Stoney Creek’s most outstanding groups and individuals.
Time: 7:00 – 8:30 PM, June 29th, 2017
Location: Stoney Creek Municipal Centre
777 Hamilton Regional Rd 8,
