Media Advisory - CivicAction Celebrates 10 Years Of Collective Leadership On 
Toronto Region's Toughest Challenges 
Ten "Faces of CivicAction" To Be Unveiled At Anniversary Celebration 
TORONTO, Nov. 26, 2012 /CNW/ - After a decade of driving collective action to 
tackle our region's toughest economic, social, and environmental challenges, 
the Greater Toronto CivicAction Alliance marks its tenth year anniversary at a 
breakfast event this Tuesday. The event will also name ten "Faces of 
CivicAction" - leaders from across the Toronto region and from the private, 
public, and not-for-profit sectors who symbolize the rich cross-section of 
volunteers that have contributed to the impact CivicAction and its initiatives 
have had on the region's prosperity. 
Many of the Toronto region's established and emerging civic leaders will 
attend the event, including 100 DiverseCity Fellows - rising city-builders who 
were selected and have participated over the last four years in an intensive 
program to accelerate their leadership and enhance their abilities to 
collaborate across sectors. A panel of leaders will look to the future of 
the Greater Toronto region and share their views on opportunities to seize for 
a more prosperous region with thriving people and places.
