(via Councillor Shad Qadri’s office)

The deadline is fast approaching for nominations for the 10th Annual Stittsville Appreciation Awards!

It’s easy to show someone in our community your appreciation whether they be a neighbor, a friend, or even a family member! This is your opportunity to bring their special contributions and achievements to light and recognize the excellence that exists within Stittsville!

Nominations must be received by Sunday April 8th!
The Roger Griffiths Memorial Citizen of the Year is awarded to an individual who best exemplifies community involvement and participation. The Senior of the Year is awarded in recognition of a senior citizen who has made a significant and long-standing contribution to our community. The Youth of the Year is presented to an individual who contributes leadership, volunteer service, serves as a peer example, and has overcome personal challenges or responds in an emergency situation. The Business of the Year is awarded to a Stittsville business that has contributed significantly to our quality of life. For further qualifications on these awards, I encourage you to visit my website.

Additionally, this year, a special new award has been added to the mix. Nominate someone who works in Stittsville for “Teacher of the Year”. This award recognizes an outstanding teacher in our community who has helped to make a longstanding impact on the community by leaving a lasting impression on shaping the young minds of Stittsville’s future generation.


Nominate someone in all five categories or as many as you like! The choice is yours!

Winners will be announced at the Appreciation Awards celebrations, which will be held on Tuesday May 17th commencing at 7:00pm at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex.

Nomination forms will be reviewed by a pre-determined selection committee so remember to be as descript as possible in your nomination and don’t leave anything out! Strong applications rely on content so you do not have to be the world’s best writer to show someone your appreciation.

I encourage everyone to fill out the attached nomination form and email it to me at or print the form for either drop off at my ward office in the Goulbourn Recreation Complex or mailed to 110 Laurier Avenue West, Ottawa, Ontario, K1P 1J1. Please include a detailed, written submission outlining why you are nominating a particular individual or business.
