Pollution Probe is Committed to Community, and seeks to improve the health and well-being of Canadians through positive, tangible environmental change.
We were joined by 400+ attendees on November 17th to celebrate community empowerment as the gateway to healthier living in a healthier environment and celebrate communities that are engaged, empowered and vibrant.
Keynote speakers Dave Johnston, President and Chief Operating Officer, Canada, Great-West Life and Lorraine Mitchelmore, President and Country Chair of Shell Canada delivered inspiring speeches about their visions for improving community health across Canada.
The presentation of the 2015 Pollution Probe Award to the Medicine Hat community in recognition of it’s efforts to end homelessness was a very special part of the evening. The award was accepted by Jaime Rogers of the Medicine Hat Community Housing Society on behalf of the community of partners, supporters and volunteers that contributed to the success of Medicine Hat’s ‘housing first’ initiative. Her heartfelt acceptance speech received a standing ovation from everyone.
The Pollution Probe Award annually celebrates extraordinary achievement by individuals or organizations working toward positive, tangible environmental change and exemplifying in their work the values espoused by Pollution Probe.

The 2014 Gala … Future Builders
The 2014 Gala was attended by 500 guests and supported by more sponsors than ever before. Whether you have attended the Gala for years or whether you were among the many newcomers in 2014, you are helping to build our community and we are honoured to have earned your trust.
The Honourable Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario, inspired us all with her presence and with her words, delivering a message of the importance of leading by example. And what better example of leadership could there be than Chief Denise Restoule and the Dokis First Nation, who honoured us by accepting the 2014 Pollution Probe Award, and more importantly, for showing us that the difference between “impossible” and “necessary” is simply a matter of our approach – moving past the what and the why, and instead getting to how.
We hope that you enjoyed sharing in our celebration, and we look forward to building Canada’s future . . . together!
