The Hero Awards acknowledge that not all heroes wear capes and spandex. Often, those who make the biggest difference are those we see everyday – from neighbours to local organizations and young change-makers.

Every year at the conference, our mission is to celebrate an individual, organization, and youth in Mississauga who has made an extraordinary contribution to crime prevention. Here are last year’s Hero Awards recipients:

Janice Battista-Lowe

Adult Hero Award

Nicolette Beaudry

Youth Hero Award
