Senior of the Year Award

Background and Criteria

The Ontario Senior of the Year Award gives each municipality in Ontario the opportunity to honour one outstanding local Ontarian who, after the age of 65, has enriched the social, cultural or civic life of his or her community.

Nominees must be a resident of the Town. No person shall receive the award posthumously. Nominees must have made their community a better place to live.

The award is limited to an individual and must be at least 65 years of age. Seniors who qualify for this award may have contributed in many different fields, such as the arts, literature, community service, voluntarism, education, fitness and sport or humanitarian activities.
