Ruth Wildgen Award

In September 1999, Ottawa lost one of its key community leaders, Ruth Wildgen. In her memory, a fund was established through Pinecrest-Queensway Community Health Centre. The purpose of this fund is to assist west-end grass roots community groups in their efforts to improve the quality of life of their neighbourhood.

Call for applications take place in the spring. It should include the name of the group, the name of the individual making the nomination and a brief description of why they have been nominated. This award is presented at the Annual General Meeting.
