Former Toronto City Manager, Shirley Hoy, wins Lieutenant Governor’s Medal of Distinction in Public Administration
Shirley Hoy, former Toronto City Manager, was declared the winner of the 2008 Lieutenant Governor’s Medal of Distinction in Public Administration today.

Administered by the Institute of Public Administration of Canada (National Capital Region, Hamilton and Toronto Region groups), the Lieutenant Governor’s Medal of Distinction is awarded each year to an individual who has provided exemplary leadership in public administration in Ontario.

“Time and again as City Manager, Shirley Hoy helped our city do the right thing in the right way,” said Mayor David Miller. “In addition to mastering the day-to-day pressures of running Canada’s largest municipal government administration,” Mayor Miller continued, “Shirley helped lay the foundations of a financially sustainable, administratively accountable, and legally empowered city that will serve Torontonians well for generations to come. This award is a fitting tribute to Ms. Hoy’s legacy, and by extension, to the professionalism and dedication of the Toronto Public Service.”

Joe Pennachetti, current City Manager, commended his predecessor’s achievement. “For years, the people of Toronto and Ontario benefited from Ms. Hoy’s hard work, dedication to public service excellence, integrity, and her unique ability to forge enduring partnerships between government, businesses and the community sector. I can think of no one more deserving of this honour than Ms. Hoy.”

The Honourable David C. Onley, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, will present the award to Ms. Hoy at a ceremony at Queen’s Park on Thursday, November 27, 2008.
