The Mayor’s City Builder Award is a civic honour that recognizes an individual, group
or organization that have – through their outstanding volunteerism or exemplary action – demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to making our city a better place today and for the future. Past recipients have been honoured for their life-long service, outstanding acts of kindness, inspiring charitable work, community building and other exemplary achievements.  This award is presented at the beginning of each Ottawa City Council meeting.

I invite you to nominate individuals, groups or organizations that have had a positive impact in your ward and in your community. You may also encourage your constituents do so. Our aim is to ensure a diverse representation of outstanding residents from all corners of our city.
