Awards Gala – Reservations / Sponsorships
The EIC will resume holding its annual awards Gala in person in 2023. Two installments of the Gala will be held on successive nights in April 2023 to allow presentation of the awards to the four cohorts of winners since 2020: the 2020 and 2021 cohorts of award winners will be celebrated on Friday, 21 April 2023, while the 2022 and 2023 cohorts will be celebrated on Saturday, 22 April 2023.
Both 2023 EIC Gala events will be held at the HILTON LAC-LEAMY Hotel, located at 3 Casino Boulevard, Gatineau-Ottawa, QC. Each gala will be a formal ceremony, including a cocktail reception (@ 5:30 PM) followed by a sit-down 4-course dinner/banquet (@ 7:00 PM) during which the awards will be presented.
Seat Reservations/Sponsorships (The payment facility will open in December 2022):
Gala seats and sponsorships may be purchased by credit card or via a PayPal account. When the payment facility re-opens later this year (a PAYPAL button will appear below), simply select one of the items and click Add to Cart to proceed to the secured online payment portal. After confirming the desired quantity of each item, click “check out” (if paying by credit card) or “PayPal check-out”. If you prefer, you can still purchase/reserve seats by mailing a cheque made out to the “Engineering Institute of Canada FUND” to EIC’s office (see address at the bottom of this page).
(1) Once you have purchased seat(s), a receipt will automatically be emailed to you by PayPal. Please check your spam folder if it is not received within a couple of minutes. Upon reception, please e-mail a note to email@example.com specifying the full name and any dietary restriction of guest(s) for whom the seat(s) has or have been reserved. The EIC Office will then confirm your registrations. No physical ticket will be shipped to you.
(2) Pre-purchased seats will be automatically transferred to the appropriate 2023 event, or fully reimbursed as long as notice of the desired cancellation is received by firstname.lastname@example.org no later than thirty (30) business days prior to the event.
A limited block of rooms (Classic and Deluxe) will be held at the Gala hotel, the Hilton Lac Leamy, at special rates. Note that the hotel features free parking.
Dress code: Formal evening or cocktail dress (women) / Black-tie or business attire (men).
