Each year, YMCAs across Canada celebrate acts of peace by recognizing individuals and groups who, without any special resources, status, wealth or position, have demonstrated a commitment to building peace within their community or communities elsewhere in the world.
During YMCA Peace Week, which will take place from November 16-23, 2019, local peacemakers will receive special recognition and a medal at Peace Medal ceremonies across Canada. Peacemakers are selected through a nomination process. To nominate a Peacemaker, please visit the https://ssmymca.ca/events-and-fundraising/peace-week.
YMCA Peace Medal will be accepted until 5 pm on Tuesday, October 1, 2019.
Please submit all completed Peace Medal nominations to:
