"It is a tremendous accomplishment to be recognized in this way by the national tourism industry for our first year of operation in Port Burwell”, said Executive Director Ian Raven. “More than that, it is a tribute to the innovative vision, hard work and dedication of our board, staff, volunteers and sponsors.”
“HMCS OJIBWA is a truly unique experience. How often do you get to snoop around a Cold War submarine?” asked Melissa Raven, Director of Communications. “Visitors are able to look behind the curtain of the Cold War to a time when international crises brought us closer to World War III than any of us imagined. OJIBWA is definitely a ‘must see’ destination.”
The Canadian Tourism Awards, presented by Deloitte, HTL Advisory Inc., and The Toronto Star are presented annually to recognize success, leadership and innovation in Canada's tourism industry.
The award winners will be announced at a Gala Dinner at the Westin Ottawa on November 26 as part of the national Tourism Congress.
