WATCH THE 2020 NATION BUILDER OF THE YEAR AWARD

The Empire Club of Canada awarded the 2020 Nation Builder of the Year Award to Canada’s front line workers, the men and women who kept us safe and functioning during the most severe pandemic to hit the world in over a century.

A virtual on-line awards ceremony was be held on December 10th to mark this year’s winner, with testimonies of tenacity and bravery from across the country and performances from some well-loved Canadian performers.
 

The Nation Builder of the Year Award was founded last year by the Empire Club to recognize an individual, group or organization that has shown outstanding leadership in bringing Canadians together to build a stronger, more unified Canada. The inaugural winner of this award was the Toronto Raptors who were celebrated in early December 2019 in a large ceremony in Toronto.

 

Front line workers quickly came to the attention of Canadians early in the pandemic as the country realized that without them our country would grind to a halt. Their dedication and at times extreme bravery were a fundamental reason that Canada was able to deal with the COVID-19 crisis as well as we did. They rose to the challenge in ways that deeply moved and impressed citizens in every community from sea to sea to sea. Whether in the area of health, food, security, construction, transportation or technology, the stories that have come to the fore have made everyone proud.

 

To highlight as many voices as we can, the Empire Club invites you send in your favourite story of a group or individual from the front lines that made a difference. We will carefully review them all. Where possible, we will include them as a part of our “March of Heroes” video that will be an integral part of the virtual ceremony in early December.
