HMC is having their Annual Community Leadership Awards Night & Fundraising Gala. This event is held annually to help bring awareness to the organization and highlight great Leaders in our community that help to exemplify what we do. The event will take place Friday, April 25th, 2014 at Oakville Conference and Banquet Centre. This year we are Mapping the Immigrant Journey through business and entrepreneurs. We wish to showcase immigrants in the Halton community that have become successful in the business world.

We will also honour one of our Community Leaders with the presentation of the Bill Allison Community Leadership Award. Each year the Bill Allison Award is awarded to a business, individual, agency or organization of Halton Region that exemplifies exceptional leadership in our diverse community. The award was created in honour of HMC founding President, Bill Allison. Mr. Allison is a long-standing community leader and volunteer, who served as the President of the Oakville Multicultural Council from 1978-1983.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made.

As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington.

The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
