Since 1992, the Canadian Club of Toronto has presented its Canadian(s) of the Year Award to distinguished Canadians whose efforts and example have improved the lives of others and inspired us as a nation. Join us on at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel on Friday, May 12th as Lifeline Syria is recognised as the Canadian Club’s 2016 Canadian of the Year for our work in assisting with private sponsorship and resettlement of Syrian refugees in Canada.
This celebration will feature a panel discussion consisting of many diverse perspectives – including Lifeline Syria founding members, leadership and staff, Canadian sponsors and Syrian newcomers. They will share their unique experiences and offer insights on how Canada can build on its internationally recognised role as being one of the leaders in this substantial humanitarian effort. Tickets can be purchased here.
