Mayor’s Awards nomination form

The Guelph Mayor’s Awards recognize people who make our city a better place through volunteer service.

Nominations are open for 2023 Mayor’s Awards

Nominate an individual for the 2023 Mayor’s Awards at before 4:30 p.m. on November 1, 2023.
Nominations can be submitted using the online application form, or by requesting a hard copy nomination form from the Mayor’s Office at [email protected] or 519-837-5643.

Submissions for the Mayor’s Awards must include a 250-750 word description of the nominee’s contributions along with contact information for the nominee and nominator. While it is not mandatory for nominees to live or work in Guelph, they must volunteer in Guelph to be eligible for the Mayor’s Award. Nominees’ achievements may include a mix of volunteer and paid efforts. Self-nominations are not eligible.

The Mayor’s Awards have been presented since 1997, when they were established by Mayor Joe Young, with a pause during the COVID-19 pandemic. Honourees have been recognized for volunteer contributions to many different aspects of city life, including arts and culture, health and mental health, community building, athletics, and the environment.

The 2023 Mayor’s Awards will be presented in person on February 1, 2024 at the Mayor’s State of the City Address, an event hosted by the Guelph Chamber of Commerce.
