Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Ambassador Program is recognized as a group of volunteers who are truly Pandemic Heroes in our town.

Nothing could stop these community members from stepping up to help visitors understand our town’s pandemic safety measures.

Town councillors Gary Boroughs, Wendy Cheropita and the Shaw Guild came together to put some friendly, informative faces on our streets in the form of these town ambassadors.

“The term hero is very appropriate for the Shaw Guild volunteers who became our town ambassadors,” Cheropita said.

“The big thing is that the program brought a friendly face, somebody that is there to answer questions people have. They help to remind people of the rules in a friendly way,” she said.

The town councillor says there is ongoing discussion about the program and whether it will be able to continue in 2021.
