Take a look then at the media release to see the description of the awards presented at the Finale.The $21 000 Capital Investment Grant is going to the Brock Street Neighbourhood and the Social Planning Council of Kitchener-Waterloo is awarding Traynor-Vanier for the 2nd year to have enough time to support resident engagement and improve the social conditions in the neighbourhood!

We thank all our champions and sponsors, and particularly our first program sponsor Julia White - The Cooperators Insurance. Both Carl Zehr and Berry Vrbanovic share the passion for neighbourhoods and we are only so grateful for the support from the Mayor's office, the City Council and the staff that we can continue to rely on.
