The City of Toronto's Access, Equity and Human Rights (AEHR) Awards recognize people or programs that have made a difference in Toronto by working to eliminate discrimination and barriers to equality.
Nominations are open for the 2017 AEHR Awards
Deadline for submissions is Thursday, August 31 at 4 p.m.
The AEHR Awards are community-driven. Nominations come from Toronto residents, and the five recipients are selected by a panel of community individuals with expertise and knowledge of issues pertinent to the awards.
Recipients will be announced in the fall, and an awards ceremony will take place at City Hall in the first week in December 2017 to coincide with International Human Rights Day.

- Aboriginal Affairs Award: Fizul Sima
