BACKGROUND

The role of a Health Director can be demanding; it is important for us to collectively celebrate each other and the work that we all do as leaders for community wellness. Through honoring our colleagues the FNHDA strives to inspire others to continue on their wellness journeys, share best practices of our achievements with one another and support each other in our journeys.

In 2012, the FNHDA established the Inspiration Awards as an opportunity to recognize and honour our association members for their dedication, passion and contributions to our work in communities. During our FNHDA AGM, we share an Inspiration Awards Ceremony, to honor inspirational Health Directors recognized for their hard work, tireless dedication and passion for our field.
