Wall of Fame Celebration Rescheduled to New Year

Tuesday November 14, 2017
Espanola, Ontario

Save the date!  The celebration to recognize this years’ Wall of Fame recipient Christi Belcourt has been rescheduled to Thursday January 11th. 

Christi Belcourt is juggling a very busy out-of-country schedule which prohibits her from attending the previously released celebration date of December 7th.

Christi is a recipient of the 2016 Governor-General’s Innovation Award, which recognizes individuals, teams and/or organizations whose innovations are truly exceptional, transformative, and positive in their impact on quality of life in Canada. Christi dedicates not only her artwork for social changes and justice for Indigenous People, but her life as well.

"We look forward to honouring Christi in the New Year," says Mayor Ron Piche.  "We are proud to have Christi call Espanola home and we are humbled to be given an opportunity to honour her with this celebration"

The inductee ceremony and reception will take place on Thursday, January 11th from 6:30-8:30 pm at the Espanola Legion. Everyone welcome!
