Canada 150 Sesquicentennial Award

Three members of the Humber College family were recognized last month for their contributions to the Etobicoke-Lakeshore community and beyond.

MP James Maloney recognized outstanding individuals in the Etobicoke-Lakeshore community with the Canada 150 Sesquicentennial Award on February 22.

The event honoured those who promote a diverse and inclusive Canada, along with entrepreneurialism, engaging and inspiring youth, working to combat poverty and reaffirming the importance of a strong environmental stewardship.

Wanda Buote, the principal of Humber’s Lakeshore Campus, received the Canada 150 Sesquicentennial Award for her relationship with community groups, including her work with the Lakeshore Grounds Coordinating Committee, the Ward 6 Joint BIA Committee, the Lakeshore Lodge Home Advisory Committee, LAMP Community Health Centre and more.

Rahul Singh and Robert Hull also received the Canada 150 award.   

Singh is the founder of the David McAntony Gibson Foundation (DMGF) and GlobalMedic. The Humber alumnus and his team have run 188 missions in 67 countries delivering aid to nearly three million people. Singh is a Toronto paramedic, and has been a professional emergency services worker since 1988. 

Hull has faithfully served with the George Hull Centre, which provides support to children and their families facing mental health issues, for more than 30 years. He is also a Humber College governor.

Congratulations to the award recipients.
