Recognition by the Jewish community of the important accomplishments of leaders whose selfless contributions to the wellbeing of the community have enhanced the lives of all Canadians, the Words & Deeds Leadership Award is presented to leaders whose contributions to humanitarian causes and to tolerance, inclusion and civil discourse in Canadian society are truly outstanding. Recipients of the award are those who demonstrate – by their words and deeds – that the efforts of one can lead to the benefit of many.
On September 9, 2015, CIJA joins the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg in honouring the Asper Family and the Asper Foundation.
