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!
