Awards Banquet

Saturday, June 10
Crowne Plaza Gatineau–Ottawa (Salon des Nations)
Pre-dinner reception: 18:30–19:00

Dinner and awards presentation: 19:00–22:00

Saturday night’s annual banquet is all about celebrating our award winners and enjoying a fun and (slightly) fancy evening with colleagues. We’ll announce the recipients of the Tom Fairley Award for Editorial Excellence, the Claudette Upton Scholarship, the Karen Virag Award, the President’s Awards, and the Lee d’Anjou Volunteer of the Year Award, and present the hilarious Oops Awards for the best bloopers, typos, and unintentional double entendres of the past year. Attendees are welcome (but not required) to dress up — whatever that means to you. Sequins or silly hats, suits or superhero capes: just go for it!

Tickets are $75 + GST each and include a buffet-style dinner with a variety of options available.
