A distinguished group of representatives from Toronto Police, Fire and Emergency Medical Services including Chiefs and Deputy Chiefs were among the attendees. Awards were presented to recipients from Police, Fire and Emergency Medical services who were selected based on three criteria: “Altruism”, “Dedication” and “Contribution to Multiculturalism”.
