Janet Menard, Commissioner of Human Services, presented the Senior of the Year Award to Annie Liem on behalf of the Ontario Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration. Mrs. Liem has dedicated much of her life to helping those less fortunate and was instrumental in supporting families and seniors in securing affordable housing in Peel over the last 30 years.
She was nominated for the award by the Region of Peel Human Services Leadership Team, in recognition of her contributions to the community through serving as Board Member and Tenant Relations at Wisma Mega Indah Incorporated and her role with Creditvale Mills. Her most recent contributions have been focused on assisting seniors as they move from independent living to assisted care.
Annie Liem’s passion for achieving excellence has been critical in the foundation and progression of Wisma and under her guidance and direction it has become a model of housing management and tenant engagement that others seek to achieve.
Regional Council congratulated Mrs. Liem on her accomplishments and recognized the great impact she has made on the community.
Mrs. Liem’s passion for assisting seniors comes from her caring and generous nature and she truly is an inspiration to others. The Region of Peel is both fortunate and honoured to have such an individual take initiative and pride in improving the wellbeing of seniors in our community.
