Among other things, Kiwanis Eastern Ottawa is responsible for organizing the
annual Canada Day celebration on Petrie Island and the sKreamers haunted attraction at the Proulx Farm on O’Toole Road. They also run a successful fellowship program, food drives, and countless free community barbeques.

The Société franco-ontarienne du patrimoine et de l’histoire d’Orléans, better known by their acronym SFOPHO, have worked hard over the years to preserve, celebrate and highlight francophone history in the community.

The organization recently published a second book that tells the history of French place names in Orléans in both French and English.

M.A.P. Physiotherapy is located at the northwest corner of St. Josesph and Jeanne d’Arc Boulevards where they have been looking after the physical needs of their clients for a number of years using a patient-focused approach in developing holistic treatment plans that treat the whole body.

Other recipients of the 2023 Gem Awards include Rangoli as Best Retail Business Food, Arteast as Best Arts or Cultural Organization, Studio Jade as Best Personal Service Business, ACE ARTE Studio for Best New Business and Blanc & Turquoise for Best Retail Business – Merchandise.

Coun. Dudas started the award program in 2021 to give residents the chance to nominate their favourite business or organization for making an effort to be an integral part of the community they serve.

Any member of the public can nominate their favourite Orléans small business or community organization by contacting Coun. Dudas’ office.
