National Employee Ownership Day and Canada’s 150th Birthday Celebration and Dinner followed by Guided Ottawa City Bus Tour and Casino Night – Wenesday, June 7 – 5:30 pm to 10:30 pm

We are excited to announce that the ESOP Association Canada is declaring Wednesday June 7th, 2017 as Canadian Employee Ownership Day and we are planning a big celebration during our conference to mark the occasion. Also, since we are in such close proximity of our Nation’s Capital, we are going to tie in Canadian Employee Ownership Day with an early Canada’s 150th Birthday celebration.

Wednesday will be a full day of conference sessions and then the celebration begins at 3:45 pm when Steve Beauchesne the CEO and Co-founder of Beau’s All Natural Brewing kicks things off with an ESOP success story. Steve’s talk will be followed by cocktails and networking before we sit down to a delicious plated dinner.

After dinner we will be picked up at the hotel for a two hour open air double-decker bus guided sightseeing tour of Ottawa. And when we return to our host hotel we will have a play money Casino night all set up for your enjoyment.

This evening will be a great networking event and is included with your registration fee. Guest tickets can be purchased in advance for $100 plus taxes. Please contact Lisa for payment details and to register your guest. There will be a cash bar available at the Four Points throughout the celebration.

We look forward to celebrating our first annual Canadian Employee Ownership Day combined with an early Canada’s 150th Birthday with you.
