We recognized a key community contributor, Rob MacIsaac, in November as the 2014 Italian-Canadian Citizen of the year. The SOI Housing and SOI Charitable Corporation continue to thrive and offer support to those in need and the elderly.

Also through the Hamilton Community Foundation, a scholarship fund has been set up at McMaster University, where a student in Italian studies will receive $1,000.00 scholarship.
