The Walk of Honour was developed in 2011 as an annual recognition of an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to recreational, social and/or cultural life in the Wood Buffalo region. The award is designed to acknowledge those individuals who make a difference in our region through their commitment and dedication to the community. In 2014 the award was transitioned to reflect the regional mandate of the Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo.

The award winner is selected by the Regional Recreation Corporation Board of Directors. Winners are announced at the annual Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo Stakeholder Reception in October.

The Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo is guided by the vision to make a difference in the region every day. The award is an opportunity to recognize those community residents who exemplify this spirit and who, through their leadership and guidance, make a difference in Wood Buffalo every day.
