Getting an award from the provincial government is giving the Highlands much deserved recognition for its efforts to make the community a livable space for everyone. The minister of senior affairs awarded Haliburton County with the 2018 Ontario Age-Friendly Community Recognition Award under Category 1. This award recognizes communities in Ontario that are working toward becoming age-friendly. It will also showcase promising practices across the province. Health promoter for Haliburton Kawartha Pine Ridge District Health Unit Angela Andrews was happy to hear about this award.
