The Order of Hamilton recognizes the exceptional voluntary contributions of individual Hamiltonians to the building of a better and improved City of Hamilton. Residents must have demonstrated an exceptional voluntary contribution to community building and/or service in Hamilton. The contributions must be determined to have been over and above their professional contributions to the City of Hamilton.
The Order is awarded by a committee consisting of the City Manager, the Clerk, and chaired by the Mayor.
This year, Anthony Frisina, a longtime resident of Ward 8, has been named as a 2020 Order of Hamilton recipient in recognition of his volunteer work in support of his passion for accessibility.
In 2014, Anthony was named a Mohawk College Alumni of Distinction recipient and recognized by the Rick Hansen Foundation as a Difference Maker.
Anthony has created and produced a local television program that tackles accessibility awareness and inclusion in the Hamilton area.
In addition, he has also founded Above and Beyond an organization helping to bridge the gap to accessibility and inclusion across the City of Hamilton. Anthony’s continued commitment to serving those in need of accessibility is an inspiration to the wider community.
