Mr. Paul Casagrande receives prestigious recognition for years of volunteer service


On Wednesday April 11th, I had the honour of participating in the Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers Ceremony.

Stittsville resident Paul Casagrande was one of several Ottawa residents to be presented with this prestigious award for his over 50 years of dedication to the Ottawa firefighting community. Through his involvement in the Ottawa Fire Services Brass Band and its respective foundation, he led fundraising efforts to build a monument recognizing and honouring the service of fallen firefighters.

Congratulations, Paul. Your dedication to the wellbeing of others is very much appreciated.
