The award recognizes residents whose work has provided a significant community service as well as improved people’s quality of life.

Slater is currently the chair of the Mayor’s Disability Advisory Committee, as well as the chair of the Aging With Disabilities Committee under the Rick Hansen Foundation Wheels in Motion.

Slater says she feels honoured to be provincially recognized and to receive an award for work that she feels so passionate about.

As part of the recognition process, recipients are being honoured on April 30 at a presentation at Government House in the province’s capital. Recipients will receive both a certificate and a medallion.

Slater says although she is unable to attend this year’s presentation due to a prior commitment, she hopes to officially receive the award at next year’s ceremony.
