In 2015, the NPCF launched a new award, with the inaugural honours being handed to 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 Gala support scholarships at Brock University and Niagara College as well as conservation projects across the NPCA watershed.
