SEDI Award 2014
The SEDI Awards were created in 2004 to celebrate the inspiring achievements of SEDI’s partners and the people they serve. The Awards are a unique opportunity to support and celebrate transformational changes taking place in communities and in the lives of real people.
The Awards celebrate:
People who have left homelessness behind and built a stronger economic future for themselves with the help of SEDI’s Independent Living Account program
Passionate, committed community workers across Canada who are using the financial literacy education training they received from SEDI to transform their communities.
Individuals, groups/organizations or governments that have made an important contribution to expanding economic opportunity for low-income people – provincially or Canada-wide – through policy and/or program innovation.
