Here are some photos from the third annual Calgary gala

At the third annual Calgary gala we celebrated the accomplishments of Tsuut’ina Nation – Economic Development Lands and South West Ring Road, the recipient of CCAB’s 2016 Aboriginal Economic Development Corporation (AEDC) Award. Tsuut’ina was chosen among a field of excellent candidates for its historic Transportation and Utility Corridor (TUC) Agreement with the Province of Alberta that transferred 1058 acres of land to the province for the construction of the final portion of the South West Ring Road.

The annual Calgary gala was a fantastic opportunity to network with the country’s top Aboriginal businesses and forward-looking Canadian companies focused on the future of business in Canada.

Sodexo Canada founded and exclusively sponsors the AEDC Award.
