On Monday, November 11th, the Canadian Institute of Steel Construction (CISC-ICCA) of the Quebec Region celebrated the 21st anniversary of the Steel Awards for Excellence in Steel Construction, at one of the most historic venues in Canada, the prestigious Montreal ‘The Windsor’, offering a welcome cocktail, a gourmet 3-course dinner, in a packed hall. The evening was hosted by Stéphanie Levesque (animator, columnist, author, cabinetmaker).

 

 

The theme for the 21st anniversary was “THROUGHOUT CANADA WE ARE STEEL“, illustrating the leadership and contribution of the steel industry to the Quebec and Canadian economy and its North American footprint. The event highlighted amazing projects that demonstrate the beauty, resilience and durability of steel, proving the benefits of choosing steel.

« Nous célébrons cette année les 21e Prix d’excellence de l’Institut canadien de la construction en acier. En tant qu’ingénieure, je reconnais l’importance de l’industrie québécoise et canadienne de l’acier pour la construction d’infrastructure résiliente pour atténuer les effets du changement climatique. En tant que sénatrice, je reconnais également l’importance de cette industrie pour l’économie et la création d’emplois au Québec et au Canada. » 

L’HONORABLE SÉNATRICE ROSA GALVEZ

« Je tiens à les remercier, au nom du gouvernement du Québec, de contribuer de manière aussi importante à une industrie génératrice d’emplois payants. Je me réjouis également que l’Institut canadien de la construction en acier veille, depuis plusieurs décennies, à défendre les intérêts de ses membres et à faire de ce domaine, comme le dit son slogan, une force légendaire au service d’un avenir durable. Félicitations aux lauréates et aux lauréats! » François Legault, premier ministre du Québec

Tribute to the Veterans

The gala theme on November 11th highlighted that the CISC Quebec Region was the first to pay tribute to our veterans. The region celebrated the day by presenting a monument to the Canadian Military Engineer Association. They were very proud to welcome representatives from the Canadian Military Engineer Association, members of the Canadian Military Family for the commemorative presentation.

Dr. Christodoulou announced that the Canadian Museum of Military Engineering will be its  new home “I hope it’s a source of inspiration for future generations.” Lieutenant-Colonel (Retired) Luc Ouellet, President, and Sandra F. Johnson Penney, Curator of the Canadian Military Engineer Museum, shared their messages.

A Special Tribute

The Quebec Region of the CISC gave an award as a tribute to Michel Vaillancourt for his contribution to the success of the steel industry and wished him a well-deserved retirement.

Dr. Hellen Christodoulou, Quebec Region Manager, reiterated, “We are working together to ensure the future prosperity of our industries, businesses and communities. We must emphasize the importance of our industry. Together, we make a significant contribution to the beautification and economy of our province, Canada and North America. As I always say, we must continually share this message!
