Distinction Awards Ceremony & Gala

GTEC 2016 - Distinction Awards Gala

2015 Distinction Awards Ceremony and Gala Highlights

Join in the celebration to recognize the teams and individuals who have achieved excellence in service delivery not only for our community but for Canadians across the country.

The evening is set at the Shaw Centre in Ottawa with the Welcome Reception that leads into the Awards Ceremony where our guests of honour, the Honourees, are welcomed with sounds of pipers and applause. Community members present the awards to up to 18 exceptional nominations who will receive a coveted gold Distinction Award Medal that will be presented in front of a capacity crowd of over 500 public and private sector guests, including deputy ministers and other government executives, leaders in industry, and team members.

Following the awards ceremony, the Celebration continues at a special reception where all guests will experience the spectacular view of the downtown city lights amidst a phenomenal décor, enjoy the many food stations and refreshments, and have the opportunity of exceptional networking. Honourees and Medalists are also afforded a wonderful backdrop to take photos with their teams.
