I am honoured to be a part of recognizing the outstanding innovation, dedication and expertise all of our nominees and winners have put forward. It is crucial, not only that these accomplishments are recognized and celebrated, but that we learn from these successes to prepare for Canada’s continued future as a world-class destination,” said TIAC President and CEO, Charlotte Bell.
