Heroes and Villains of 2015: Hall of Heroes

The people, places, things, and ideas that made our city a better place in 2015.

Before we plunge into 2016, it’s time to reflect on the year that was. That includes celebrating some of the people, places, things, and ideas that made Toronto a better place in 2015. That’s right, it’s time to vote for your Heroes of the Year.

Read through our nominations—you might learn about someone who is pretty amazing—and cast your ballot. You can select up to three candidates you would like to vote for. The ballot box closes midnight on Thursday, January 7. We’ll announce your Superhero and Supervillain of the year Friday at noon.
