We had an incredible and inspiring Peace Medal Breakfast this year, thank you to everyone who attended our awards ceremony and congratulations to the 2019 Peace Medal Winners: Trayvone Clayton, East Coast Filipino Portal, and Halifax Mobile Food Market.

YMCA Peace Medal
As part of YMCA Peace Week, YMCAs across Canada present the YMCA Peace Medal to individuals or groups who, without any special resources, status, wealth or position, demonstrate a commitment to the values of P-E-A-C-E through contributions made within their local, national or global community. This year marks the 31st Anniversary of the YMCA Peace Medal. Since 1987, more than 1,900 individuals and groups across Canada have been recognized for their peacebuilding work with YMCA Peace Medals. Many people and organizations do important peace-building work. Some have formal connections to the YMCA, while others live and work in our communities and have no current connection to the YMCA.
