Aperçu

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.

2017 Award Recipients

Dr. Cindy Blackstock, a member of the Gitksan First Nation, is Executive Director of First Nations Child and Family Caring Society of Canada and a Professor at McGill’s School of Social Work. Her work in child protection and Indigenous children’s rights promotes culturally based equity for First Nations children and families and engages children in reconciliation.

The Very Reverend Stan McKay, a member of the Fisher River Cree Nation, is a spiritual leader, teacher, and activist. He was the first Aboriginal moderator of the United Church of Canada and successfully advocated for the Church’s apology,issued in 1986, for its role in cultural oppression of First Nations peoples.

Musical entertainment will be provided by Kelly Holliff, Brenda MacIntyre, Richard Margison, Jackie Richardson Monica Schroeder, and Spiritwind. Our evening's host will be Jesse Wente, Director of Film Programmes at TIFF Bell Lightbox, CBC Broadcaster, and film critic. Jesse is Ojibwe from Toronto.

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.
