YMCA of Eastern Ontario

Building healthy communities

Peace Medal Awards

Each year, the YMCA of Eastern Ontario, together with YMCAs across Canada, will celebrate peace in our communities and reflect on the peace-building work that happens all year both inside and outside the YMCA.

During this annual event, YMCAs celebrate acts of peace by recognizing individuals and groups who, without any special resources, status, wealth or position, have demonstrated a commitment to building peace within their community or communities elsewhere in the world. Peace-building is core to the YMCA’s commitment to strengthening the foundation of healthy communities and part of the YMCA of Eastern Ontario’s year-round programs.

Nominations for the Peace Medal are open in the fall. To nominate someone, please complete our nomination form.
