This award recognizes and honours the meaningful contributions of a private business which went above and beyond to support essential service workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. This can be interpreted broadly to include any act that improves individual or collective mental health and/or spirit.
Examples of meaningful contributions may include donations to essential service businesses or the leading of community campaigns to show support for those unable to work from home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Media organizations who brought to light mental health issues impacting essential workers and society as a whole during the COVID-19 pandemic would also be an example of a Caring Partner.
All recipients will be celebrated at our Pandemic Heroes – Standing Up for Mental Health Gala on Thursday, December 2, 2021 at the OMNI King Edward Hotel in Toronto, Ont.
