Volunteer MBC celebrates Canada 150 by recognizing volunteers in the Peel region
Volunteer MBC is a well-known and highly regarded matchmaker of volunteers to not-for-profit organizations in the Peel region. This past December, it celebrated Peel Cares Canada 150, coinciding with International Volunteer Day, which is recognized worldwide. The celebration took place at the Brampton Courtyard by Marriott Hotel and was marked by a cocktail reception. The highlight of the night was the presentation of commemorative Canada 150 pins and Volunteer MBC “Peel Cares” certificates to 101 Peel residents who had contributed at least 150 volunteering hours in 2017 to local organizations and causes. The “150” was chosen to commemorate Canada’s 150th birthday. The Government of Ontario was represented by MPP Amrit Mangat, who signed letters of appreciation on behalf of the province, and by MP David Tilson, who signed on behalf of the Canadian government.
