Canada 150 Community Leaders to be honoured next week in Fredericton

Fredericton MP Matt DeCourcey is hosting a reception next week to recognize local Canada 150 Community Leaders with a special Sesquicentennial Pin.

After a call for nominations, a committee was formed to select twenty people who demonstrated exceptional leadership and made significant contributions in one of four Canada 150 themes.

Those themes are Diversity and Inclusion; Reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples; Youth Engagement and Leadership; and, Environmental Stewardship.

The reception will be held Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at the Gallery on Queen Street.
