Person of the Year

The Person of the Year project originated in 1967 for the purpose of paying tribute to outstanding individuals for the exceptional dedication and tireless efforts in contributing towards the public's welfare.

This initiative is not limited to a specific function or field, but the contribution of the recipient is seriously considered, whatever his field of action.

CIBPA believes that this project is necessary to give evidence of public recognition to a meritorious person, as we know that self-devotion beyond the regular daily chores must be recognized by groups representing in part or as a whole the general public.

The first to be elected to this hommage was Montreal Mayor Jean Drapeau, in 1967, for his contribution to the success of EXPO '67.

In 2015 the name of Danny Maciocia has been added to the list. Mr. Maciocia has been elected to the award for his accomplishments in the sports field and for his involvement with the young.
