The Rural Ontario Leaders Awards was launched to help celebrate the achievements of those who are dedicated to helping improve the quality of life and economic development of rural Ontario. The awards program will recognize and celebrate rural residents, communities, regions and businesses who demonstrate leadership in building a stronger rural Ontario.
