The Town of Caledon is recognizing 18 citizens for their dedication to their community in 2021, as part of its annual Community Recognition initiative.

“It’s more important than ever before that we recognize and celebrate the tremendous contributions of extraordinary residents and volunteers who help build and enrich our community in their own special way,” said Mayor Allan Thompson.  “Our Community Champions for 2021 are all of our incredible front-line workers who have given and sacrificed so much, they continue to make us #Caledonproud.”

 

2021 Community Recognition recipients

There are several awards presented to residents who qualify for a Volunteer Service Award or Citizen Achievement Award based on the criteria and eligibility for each category.

Citizen Achievement Awards are designed to recognize Caledon residents who have competed or been recognized at the Provincial, National or International levels in the areas of sports or arts and culture. This category includes the Distinguished Citizen Award and the Community Champion Award.
