The Mirabelli-Glossop Award for Distinguished Contribution is presented in recognition of exceptional and sustained contributions to the work of the Vanier Institute of the Family. To be recognized, contributions must be made in-kind and serve to enhance the Institute’s commitment to better understanding and supporting the central importance of Canada’s families, in all of their diversity.
Carole Tremblay and Wanda Turnbull-Lavoie received the distinguished Mirabelli-Glossop Award in 2015 for their outstanding contribution to the success of the Families in Canada Conference 2015. Leading up to the conference, Carole and Wanda joined the Vanier Institute team to support the efforts to ensure that the conference was an inspiring and meaningful event for all. With years of experience from their work at the Canadian Human Rights Commission, Carole and Wanda knew exactly how to attend to all the important and essential details of the conference. Along with their joyful and “can-do” attitudes, Carole and Wanda quickly became colleagues and friends – and will forever be members – of the Vanier team.
The Vanier Institute is grateful for all contributors, donors, volunteers and special advisors.
