2017 Banquet Highlights

SIGNALS was proud to host its fifteenth annual                                                                             banquet on January 27th, 2017. The IMG_8848Banquet took place at Novotel this year, in the heart of downtown Ottawa. Gracious sponsors, including The Chemical Industry Association of Canada, Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company and consulting firm Stratos, continue to enable us to host this banquet every year.



The night was full of great food, drinks        and lively conversation. Speaker Julie Gelfand,  Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development, partook in an engaging discussion with Professor Glen Toner on the continual need for independent review of government’s management of environmental and sustainable development issues. Her role within the Office of the Auditor General of Canada enables her to conduct such reviews independently and make recommendations.
