David Abbott, a North York resident, is the latest recipient of the City of Toronto’s Aboriginal Affairs Award. Abbott was recognized specifically for his work with the Aboriginal Economic Business Development Project, although he has served on a number of boards including the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto and the Native Women’s Resource Centre of Toronto and is currently on the advisory board for the Aboriginal Professional Association of Canada. The Aboriginal Affairs Award was established in 2003 and is given to a person, people or organization whose volunteer efforts have made or are making a significant or ongoing contribution to the well-being and advancement of the Aboriginal community in Toronto. This includes services or advocacy work on issues such as health, shelter work, street work, governance or self-determination, employment, economic development, human rights or cultural activities.
