Nominations are now closed. Thank you to everyone that submitted a nomination!

Established in 2016, The Kent Hehr Leadership Award celebrates and recognizes an individual’s personal resiliency and transformative ability to turn a vision into reality. The award will be given to an individual that works towards building an inclusive city where everyone belongs.

The Kent Hehr Leadership Award will be presented at Dinner for Doors, Accessible Housing’s annual fundraising evening on October 12, 2017. Dinner for Doors will be at the Grey Eagle Resort & Casino, and is an experiential evening that strives to elevate levels of awareness of accessibility challenges, and inspires compassion and generosity for people in need of adequate housing. The evening offers guests a truly unique experience as they navigate the room in a wheelchair, walker, vision-limiting glasses and other assorted mobility aides. Tickets for Dinner for Doors are now on sale!

“Leaders embody inclusiveness and human compassion: they are an integral part of building resilient communities. Leadership – and your involvement in making Calgary a better place to live for all – is just one piece of the puzzle making the world a better place: for everyone to care, share, and play together.” – MP Kent Hehr
