We are now welcoming nominations for the 2015 Sheila Lupson Healthy Communities Recognition Award. Nominate an organization in your community today!
The purpose of this award is to recognize organizations, partnerships, or networks who have exemplified the key elements of the Healthy Communities approach in their work. The award was established in memory of Sheila Lupson, a long-time member of the OHCC board of directors, who passed away on April 28, 2009. Sheila was a dedicated community volunteer and advocate who was genuinely committed to building Healthy Communities.
On March 24, 2015, the Smart Growth 2015 Forum took place in Toronto. The Forum was hosted by the Ontario Smart Growth Network (OSGN), a project of the Ontario Healthy Communities Coalition. The Forum built on the work that the OSGN had done over the preceding months, which included a survey on smart growth issues and a webinar on "Smart Growth in Ontario and Why it Matters".
