Submit a Nomination
HAMPTON, August 8, 2017 –Alaina Lockhart, Member of Parliament for Fundy Royal, announced today that she will be awarding twenty (20) Community Leader Awards to constituents that exemplify one or more of the four pillars of the Canadian Identity:
- Diversity and Inclusion
- Reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples
- Youth Engagement and Leadership
- Environmental Stewardship
The public is invited to nominate a Fundy Royal resident for a Community Leader Award. A volunteer committee made up of leading members of Fundy Royal communities will review nominations and recommend Community Leader Award recipients.
The twenty (20) chosen recipients will receive limited edition sesquicentennial pins. The pins, incorporating the original copper which covered the roof of Canada’s parliament buildings from 1918 to 1996, celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary of confederation. They are intended as a token of the Federal Government’s appreciation for leadership in the four pillars.
Those selected to receive a Community Leader Award will be invited to an award ceremony later in 2017.
Nominations can be submitted online at fundyroyal.ca. Paper nomination forms are available at the Hampton Constituency Office, located at 599 Main Street, Suite 104, Hampton. The deadline for nominations is August 31, 2017.
