The Community Spirit Awards (CSA) recognition program is back! Residents are invited to nominate community champions who have made a significant difference in Oakville for a 2023 Community Spirit Award.

The awards have been refreshed to include broader awards categories that celebrate community members who make a difference in Oakville through volunteer efforts or acts of kindness.

Nominations will be accepted until Friday, April 28, 2023, at 4 p.m. in the following award categories:

  1. Arts, Culture & Heritage Award –  sponsored by The Oakville Beaver
  2. Climate Action Award - sponsored by FirstOntario Credit Union

  4. Inclusion, Diversity, Equity & Accessibility Award - sponsored by Access Abilities
  5. Inspiration Award - sponsored by RBC Royal Bank
  6. Leadership & Innovation Award – sponsored by Amica Senior Lifestyles

Since the Town of Oakville spent the last year refreshing the program, the past two years are being combined into one special event to honour those who have gone above and beyond in 2021 and 2022. This year’s Community Spirit Awards celebration event will take place on June 8, 2023 at the Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre. Décor has been sponsored by Gateman-Milloy Inc. More details will be shared in May.

Nomination details are available on the town’s website. Please submit your nomination form online on our Community Spirit Awards page to nominate a community champion today!
