Nominations for 2023 Warden’s Community Service Awards now being accepted

The County of Renfrew is once again calling on residents to recognize community contributions of friends, colleagues and businesses as nominations for the annual Warden’s Community Services Awards are now open.

These awards are a meaningful way to honour and thank an individual, not-for-profit organization and for-profit business for their community involvement and commitment.

Individuals in our community step up in many ways to improve and strengthen the quality of life we enjoy here in the Ottawa Valley – from participating in and organizing community events, devoting their time and energy to politics, supporting social support organizations, coaching and managing sports clubs and teams and celebrating our culture and heritage. Nominate an outstanding individual from your community.

For-profit businesses are significant contributors to community well-being. Many for-profit-businesses sponsor sports teams and youth groups, support charity events, or contribute to local arts and culture. This is your opportunity to have these valuable corporate citizens recognized and acknowledged for their good deeds. You can nominate a local for-profit business that makes a difference in Renfrew County.

Not-for-profit organizations in Renfrew County contribute to and assist community members facing a wide range of challenges, and often these organizations offer services and support to those most in need. Do you know a not-for-profit that is a community champion? Nominate them for this year’s award.


“These awards provide an opportunity to honour and recognize individuals and organizations which have made positive contributions to our community,” said Renfrew County Warden Peter Emon. “We’ve had many deserving recipients in our council chambers over the years and we look forward to acknowledging the efforts of Renfrew County residents again this year.”

Once the nominations are received, they will be reviewed by a committee comprised of the Warden Emon, Chief Administrative Officer/Clerk Craig Kelley and one member of County Council. All nominees are considered based on the criteria as to how they contribute to the County of Renfrew’s quality of life.
