Recognizing A Lifetime of Outstanding YMCA Leadership
The YMCA Fellowship of Honour is the highest honour and most valued award in the YMCA in Canada. People are our greatest resource and the YMCA Fellowship of Honour is a way to celebrate their achievements. Each nomination is judged on its own merits, based on the impact that a nominee has made on a YMCA Association and community or communities.
Since 1981, 123 individuals from across Canada have been appointed to the YMCA Fellowship of Honour. The profiles of each recipient show how these leaders have passed on a legacy of caring from one generation to the next, and have inspired civic responsibility in others.
We applaud and thank all the recipients for their generous contribution to building healthier communities.
