Celebrating Seniors Award
Seeking exceptional seniors! As part of the Council’s vision of ‘respected, informed, and engaged seniors living in an age-friendly Ottawa,’ we have launched a new award. We want to thank those who share our values. They must be residents of Ottawa and over the age of 60. They must be playing a major role in the community.
