On Friday, March 4, 2016, Stephen Lytton received the Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award. This award “recognizes individuals who volunteer their time to help others and to build a smarter and more caring nation. The award also highlights the fine example set by these volunteers, whose compassion and engagement are so much a part of our Canadian character. It allows us to thank them for their contributions and for the positive impact they have had on the lives of others.”
Stephen gave a speech at the 2010 CACV annual general meeting and became a CACV board member in 2013.
Stephen recently performed in “Bah! Humbug!” at the Fei & Milton Wong Experimental Theatre. He will be a featured presenter at the Ignite conference in Prince George in June.
