It's National Philanthropic Day

In honour and recognition of National Philanthropy Day in Canada, I would like to extend heartfelt appreciation to everyone who has given their time, money and effort to better our city and nation.

In 2012, parliament officially named Nov. 15 National Philanthropy Day. We are the first country in the world to officially recognize the date. It has been celebrated since 1986 and I am proud that as a nation, we have set aside a day to recognize the philanthropic contributions of our great citizens.
