Do you know someone in Kanata North who’s made a difference in our Community? Nominate them for a Community Award in appreciation for their contributions. Awards will be given for Youth of the Year, Senior of the Year, a Citizen of the Year and Business of the Year.   A copy of the nomination form is attached. Nominations forms can also be found at the Ward Office (2500 Campeau), at the Beaverbrook Library depot in the Beaverbrook Mall (2 Beaverbrook Rd) or online at  Submit completed forms to Councillor Wilkinson at the Ward Office (2500 Campeau), by mail 110 Laurier Ave. W, Ottawa ON K1P 1J1, fax 613-580-2514, or at via my website. Submissions must be received on or before May 17, 2013.  A special ceremony will be held on June 18th to recognize the winners and those nominated for their contribution to the community.

Time Capsules Have Arrived!

Our new recreation centre will be opening in November.  As part of the fundraising for inclusions that are not funded by the City the idea was raised about having time capsules.  These are made of bamboo and are the size of a small soup can with inside dimensions of 90 mm (3.5”) by 55mm (2”).  These capsules will be put in a vault in the floor of the new recreation centre which will be opened in 2063 – bringing delight to future generations.   Time capsules are available for $20 each (cash or cheque).  If there is interest I will arrange for a time capsule filling event for your Community Association.  For each capsule a certificate will be provided with the number of your capsule.  Each canister will be checked as they are filled to ensure that no liquids, gels, batteries or other items that may degrade the canister are included.  Check my website for updates and information on additional time capsule filling locations/events.

Cleaning the Capital is Celebrating its 20th Year

Many organizations have already shown their community pride and are taking part in this spring’s city wide cleanup campaign!   If you haven’t yet registered join your friends, coworkers and neighbours and cleanup up public property.  Get involved and have a great time. Be proud of your city! Together, we can keep Ottawa clean, green, graffiti and litter-free! Register your cleanup and you will receive a cleanup kit with all the supplies you and your team will need to get started! Once completed remember to submit your cleanup report and you could win a prize! It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3! Visit for more information, to register and to submit your report.  Having all Community Associations participate also adds to numbers for the Ward Award which has been won by Kanata North in the past and which with all participating we can win again.

Attached you will find an electronic copy of the Community Award Announcement Poster, Nomination Form and a copy of this letter.  Contact me if you would like a printed copy of any of these items.

Thank you for your participation.
