The annual event established by the QCGN is meant to honour individuals who have made an impact on Quebec’s English-speaking community. Clifford Lincoln, James Carter, Sid Stevens and Earl De La Perralle, were each winners of the Sheila and Victor Goldbloom Distinguished Community Service Award, while Claudia Di Iorio won the Young Quebecers Leading the Way Award.
“Later this month, Claudia Di Iorio will be honoured by the Quebec Community Groups Network for her leadership in road safety education and the work she’s done to enact change in Montreal.”
Seven years after being injured from a high-speed collision, she shared her story in the documentary “Dérapage”. She also served as spokesperson for the Cool Taxi initiative and now sits on the board of Quebec’s automobile insurance board (SAAQ). She’s been chosen for the QCGN’s third annual Young Quebecers Leading the Way Award to recognize and celebrate outstanding achievements of English-speaking Quebecers under 30.
