Recognition Awards


The purpose of this Northern Healthy Communities Partnership initiative is to give a pat on the back to people or organizations, anywhere in Northern Saskatchewan, who deserve a little recognition, and would otherwise never be recognized for their contributions to healthier communities or for the positive changes they have made in their own lives. 

Anyone can submit a nomination.  Examples are endless; the key is positive change towards healthy lifestyles -- active living, healthier eating, promotion of mental well-being and prevention of substance abuse activities.  Click here for a copy of the nomination form.
