The Mary Sheffield Award is presented annually to recognize the outstanding work of women in our community who have provided exceptional service, achievement and leadership in addressing homelessness and poverty in Toronto.
Last year’s winner in the 26 years and over category was Vicky Stergiopoulos, a clinician scientist and the Psychiatrist-In-Chief at St. Michael’s Hospital. She is also the Director of the Division of Adult Psychiatry and Health Systems in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto.
Three awards will be presented on March 6th, 2014, two days before International Women's Day: two for women from the broader Toronto community in two age categories, and one for a Fred Victor program participant. Click here to submit a nominee or to read the submission guidelines.
A pragmatic and visionary woman, Mary Sheffield began the first work of what became Fred Victor in 1886 by starting a Sunday school for "rough and neglected" boys.
