To mark the milestone, Anthony Rota, Member of Parliament for Nipissing-Timiskaming, and Speaker of the House of Commons will be recognizing exceptional community leaders in Nipissing-Timiskaming.
“If you know someone who has made a significant contribution through their work, volunteerism, activism, or community leadership, please consider nominating them for this once in a lifetime exceptional recognition,” says Rota.

“It is important to recognize the work of community volunteerism, activism and leadership and make sure those efforts do not go unnoticed,” says Rota. “There are people working hard to make sure we can live and work in a place that is safe and celebrates many cultures and identities.”
