Honourees of the Distinction Awards


Honourees Reception

The Celebration of Excellence begins with being selected as an Honouree of the GTEC Distinction Awards. It is considered a recognition of high achievement and of great accomplishment as each submitted nomination goes through a rigorous review process and evaluation by industry and government peers. The chosen Honourees are the highest ranked of all submissions in consideration for the GTEC Distinction Awards Medal.

Recognition begins with the official announcement of the Honourees in September with a press release and posting on the GTEC website.

For this year’s honouree listing, please refer to:

Group I – Federal
Group II – Provincial
Group III – Municipal


Following the announcement, each year in advance of the Awards Gala (Nov.1 – 2016), an Honourees Reception takes place to celebrate our annual Honourees and their teams. With it being a whole new year, a new list, this year’s special reception has moved to a whole new venue.

Location: The Canadian War Museum, Barney Danson Theatre
Date: October 4, 2016
Time: 5:00 – 7:00 PM

Invited guests and representatives from each selected initiative gather with Senior Executives from public sector and industry to celebrate the selected projects. Short speeches of welcome and congratulations are made by dignitaries amidst the Honouree Service Delivery Award Certificates on display. These stunning complimentary award certificates include the project name, the nominated department(s) and the names of team members who have contributed to the success of the project and are provided to each selected team at the end of the celebration. Honourees are encouraged to take photos with their teams alongside their certificate while networking and enjoying light refreshments and hors d’oeuvres.
