Call for Nominations for OHF Awards


The Ontario Hockey Federation is requesting nominations for the following awards:


Officiating Program Award: This award recognizes individuals actively involved in the officiating

program for their contribution to the game, for their officiating skills and for what they put back into

amateur hockey within the Branch.


Order of Merit Award: This award honours those individuals who have served amateur hockey for many

years. The recipients have participated as a player, as a coach and an association member and have

made significant contributions to amateur hockey within the OHF.


Staff Award: Established in 2009, the Staff Award honours a staff person that best exemplifies the

commitment to the values and objectives of the OHF and its Member Partners, exhibits pride and

respect for the organizations of the OHF and its participants, demonstrates team spirit both in the office

and in one’s life and shows commitment and dedication for the betterment of the game of hockey

within the Branch to the level they have the ability.


Volunteer of the Year Award: This award recognizes outstanding commitment and significant

Bill Richmond Memorial Award: In 1996, the OHF established the Bill Richmond Memorial Award to

recognize outstanding achievement and involvement in the area of hockey development within the OHF.

For over 20 years, Mr. Richmond was a leader in the development and delivery of the National Coaches

Certification Program (NCCP). He passed away suddenly in 1995, but left a legacy of hard work and

commitment to the development of the game in our Branch.


Dr. Allan Morris Award: The Dr. Allan Morris Award is presented to recognize the outstanding

achievement of an individual who has exemplified dedication to amateur hockey and the mission of the

Branch. Previously known as the Past Presidents’ Honour Award, it was renamed in 2009 in honour of

Dr. Allan Morris, who served as Branch President from 1997-2001 and as Hockey Canada’s Chairman of

the Board from 2007 until his passing. Dr. Morris had a profound impact on the game not only within

the OHF but throughout the country.
