2018 Frances Lankin Awards

About the Award

The Frances Lankin Award was established in 2011 by Social Planning Toronto on the occasion of Frances Lankin’s retirement from United Way Toronto. It is awarded annually to an individual who has made a significant, sustained contribution to the non-profit community sector in the City of Toronto.

Frances Lankin was CEO of the United Way Toronto for over 10 years. Now a Senator in Canada's Parliament, her 11 year Legislative career included serving as Minister of Government Services and Chair of Management Board, Minister of Health and Long Term Care, Minister of Economic Development and Trade, and the MPP for Beaches—East York.

Previous years' recipients include Liane Regendanz, Charlotte Maher, Rob Howarth, Kay Blair, Colin Hughes, Heather McGregor, Debbie Douglas, Sunder Singh, and Debbie Field. Please join us at our celebration and reception as we present the awards.


Our reception this year will take place at Mattamy Athletic Centre, formerly Maple Leaf Garden. Now converted into a multi-use athletic facility, the building has maintained its historic charm while hosting a variety of new events.
