Each year, the City of Kitchener is proud to celebrate the remarkable community contributions of older adults, ages 65 and older. The Senior of the Year Award is part of an annual provincial recognition program that gives us the opportunity to honour an outstanding Kitchener citizen who has enriched the social, cultural or civic life of our community.

  • give permission to be nominated and verify that the information being submitted is correct
