Call for Nominations: The Mr. Carl Reinboth Memorial Award

In 2021, we lost a friend, an ally and a fierce advocate for love, understanding, and community support. Carl Reinboth was a dedicated outreach worker who devoted his life to helping others.

Somerset West has created the Mr. Carl Reinboth Award to commemorate Carl's legacy and to recognize the outstanding commitment of those working in harm reduction in Ottawa. This award honours an individual in the field of harm reduction who shows radical compassion for people who use drugs, and collaborates with people, organizations and communities to achieve better client care.

The individual being nominated must:

- Live or work in Ottawa

- Work in the field of harm reduction

- Be committed to working with others to positively impact the lives of those around them, with a focus on people who use drugs

Deadline for nominations:

Nominations must be submitted by noon (12:00 pm) on Monday, May 2, 2022.
