Community Excellence Award


The Community Excellence Award is a new award that will recognize and honour citizens who through their achievements and extraordinary efforts have made exemplary contributions regionally, provincially, nationally, and/or internationally in the fields of Arts & Culture, Academics, or Humanitarian.

Who determines the winner of this Award?

A Review Committee appointed by City Council will make recommendations to Council.

How do you nominate someone for this Award?

Nominations may be made by anyone (with the exception of themselves and direct family members) along with references and background information on the designated application form.  Nominations will be reviewed each Fall for the upcoming year.  The form provides detail on the criteria required to win the award and nominate someone.

Why nominate someone?

Mission is full of talent! Many individuals with this talent live in the community or call Mission home and have gone on to do great things, provincially, nationally, or internationally.  We want to recognize and celebrate this local homegrown talent.
