On Thursday, October 27, 2022, the Canadian Institute of Steel Construction (CISC-ICCA) Quebec Region celebrated the 22nd anniversary of the Steel Construction Awards of Excellence, at the Palace Convention Center, offering a welcome cocktail and a gourmet buffet, to a full house of guests.
The evening was hosted by Stéphane Bélanger; funny, impactful, impressive, and extravagant! The theme for the 22nd anniversary was “THE CISC IS THE LINK THAT UNITES THE STEEL INDUSTRY”, illustrating the leadership and contribution of the steel industry to the Quebec and Canadian economy as well as its North American footprint. The Quebec steel industry is a dynamic industry, a real driver of innovation, job creation and economic growth in Quebec.
The CISC Awards for Excellence in Steel Construction is a signature and prestigious event. Teams are rewarded for delivering their exceptional steel projects, showcasing complexity, innovation, beauty, uniqueness, and originality, among many other attributes.
