On June 15, the 60th anniversary of Ontario’s Human Rights Code, the Ontario Human Rights Commission will announce the recipients of the first-ever Daniel G. Hill Human Rights awards. Recipients will be named in three categories:
- Young Leaders, awarded to a person under age 30 for their outstanding contribution to advancing human rights in Ontario
- Distinguished Service, awarded for outstanding contribution to advancing human rights
- Lifetime Achievement, awarded to an individual for significant contributions over their lifetime to advance human rights.
The OHRC received dozens of nominations, and choosing recipients was a very challenging process since there were so many deserving candidates. A special committee, which included members from the OHRC’s Community Advisory Group, reviewed and short-listed the nominations, and the final decision was made by the OHRC Commissioners.
Join us by watching a YouTube premiere of the announcement at 9:00 a.m., and meet the Daniel G. Hill Award recipients, who have taken steps to make Ontario a better place to live, and whose contributions will last for generations.
