Eventbrite - Public Heroes Awards Media Launch & Youth Recognition


For the past 7 years, Intercultural Dialogue Institute (IDI) GTA has been organizing the Public Heroes Awards ( to recognize the outstanding members of police, fire and paramedic services in the GTA as well as RCMP ‘O’ Division, ORNGE, OPP, Corrections Ontario and Canadian Armed Forces. Officers are nominated for the award by the public or by their peers, and selected by a prestigious hosting and selection committee based on three criteria: “altruism”, “dedication”, and “community involvement”. 

Every year IDI Toronto organizes a media launch to kick off the nomination process for  Public Heroes Awards. This event is also the venue for recognition of the youth, future Public Heroes. At the media launch youth is recognized, who has demonstrated outstanding performance through participation in volunteer, co-op education, or cadet programs in first responder services, and Canadian Armed Forces.

Media Launch for Public Heroes Awards 2018 will be co-hosted by Toronto Paramedics Services at 895 Eastern Avenue, Toronto, ON on Nov. 21st, 2017, 10:15am.
