Overview

The Toronto United Church Council’s annual Heart & Vision Awards Concert celebrates our Church's commitment to social justice. Through an evening of world-class music, the concert recognizes individuals who have contributed significantly to social justice initiatives in Canada and internationally.

2018 Award Recipients

Senator Murray Sinclair, was the first Aboriginal Judge appointed in Manitoba (and Canada’s second), where he served the justice system for over 25 years. He served as Co-Chair of the Aboriginal Justice Inquiry in Manitoba and as Chief Commissioner of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). As head of the TRC, he participated in hundreds of hearings across Canada, culminating in the issuance of the TRC’s report in 2015.

Grafton and Eileen Antone, Heart & Vision’s first award recipient couple, are elders of the Oneida Nation. They will be recognized for their tireless efforts in mentoring First Nations’ youth, the preservation and teaching of First Nations’ culture and language, and the establishment and operation of the social and spiritual ministry of the Toronto Urban Native Ministry. 

Musical entertainment will be provided by:

Jackie Richardson

and

The Young Creek Performers, First Nations Drummers and Dancers.

Drew Hayden Taylor will host

Proceeds from the concert and gifts to the Community Relief Fund support the Council’s partnership programs through which local congregations rebuild and equip their church facilities to enhance community social services.
