Community Leadership Award

2017 Recipient: Janet St. Amand
YMCA of Niagara

The Community Leadership Award celebrates someone who has shown exemplary dedication to the community. Janet St. Amand launched and expanded the YMCA Employment and newcomers Services, supported the amalgamation of four Niagara YMCAs, and won the Niagara Award in 2015. She personifies the depth of strength in Niagara, and her commitment to the YMCA, its employees, and the community-at-large are truly worthy of the Community Leadership Award.

Builder of the Year

2017 Recipient: Mike Weir Winery
Barry Katzman, President

In 2014, the Mike Weir Winery retail and hospitality centre in Beamsville opened a modern facility on a 50-acre with a spectacular view of vineyards, Lake Ontario and the Toronto skyline. All profits from the winery go to the Mike Weir Foundation, which has committed $6 million to help multiple children’s charities. Many fundraisers are held at the winery, including the upcoming TASTE the Harvest by Hospice Niagara. With a centre contributing to both the economic and community well-being of Niagara, Mike Weir Winery is a fitting recipient of the Builder of the Year Award.
