September 2000 marks the 9th anniversary of the Healthy City Neighbourlies
The Awards are the City's way to recognize projects that address the Healthy
City goals of Equity, Economy and Environment and which make Toronto a better
place to live, work, and play.
Established in 1992, the Awards have acknowledged the innovative work of 52
groups covering a wide range of initiatives. The winners are presented with a
commemorative plaque and a cheque for up to $2000. The Awards this year will
be presented on September 14. Winners from past years will be invited to
participate in a day-long display of their award winning initiatives. Everyone
is invited to attend and learn more about what Toronto's communities and groups
are doing to keep the city healthy.
The Neighbourlies are dedicated to the memory of City Councillor Dan Leckie

Healthy City Project. He was a tireless supporter of social justice, health,
