Nominations are now open for the Order of Ottawa and the Brian Kilrea Award for Excellence in Coaching. Once again this year, His Worship Jim Watson will award up to 15 deserving and extraordinary citizens with the Order of Ottawa in recognition of their exceptional contributions in many areas of city life including arts and culture, business, philanthropy, health care, education, public service, labour, communications and media, science, sports and entertainment. The ceremony is scheduled to take place on Thursday November 3, 2022.
Any resident of Ottawa who has made a significant contribution in a professional capacity that has been of benefit to our community is eligible for nomination.
Submissions consisting exclusively of volunteer work will not be considered. Such submissions, however, could be considered for the Mayor’s City Builder Award, a civic honour created to recognize outstanding volunteerism.
Nominations by immediate family members, self-nominations, and posthumous nominations will not be accepted. Municipal, provincial and federal officials are not eligible to be considered for this award while they are in office.
Nominations will be considered every year for five consecutive years from the date of submission.
