The City offers various Community Recognition Programs that acknowledge the residents and friends of Pickering.

Commemorative Programs

Our Commemorative Tree or Bench Program allow members of the public to create a lasting memorial. The contribution of a tree or a bench to our public lands adds to the beauty of these places and contributes to the community's overall uniqueness.

Community Recognition Awards

Every year, we pay tribute to deserving residents, businesses and organizations for their outstanding efforts in the community. Our Civic Awards acknowledge leadership, volunteerism, and individual and group achievements within the community.

Good Neighbour 

The Good Neighbour Program is an open call for all citizens to recognize a good neighbour whose actions create a vibrant and connected neighbourhood. It is important to recognize the simple acts of human kindness that occur between neighbours, making Pickering a place we are proud to call home.
