NPCF Events




In 2015, the NPCF launched a new award gala to honour the Rt. Hon. John Turner, Canada's 17th Prime Minister. The award is handed out annually to an individual, group or business who has demonstrated leadership in promoting or improving water and the environment within the NPCA’s watershed.  Proceeds from the Award Gala support scholarships at Brock University and Niagara College as well as conservation projects across the Niagara Region, Hamilton and Haldimand County.
