2017 Gala of Excellence

We invite you to join us on October 21st to celebrate your class milestone anniversary as well as the achievements and outstanding contributions that our alumni make to the world of business, the health sector, the community and their alma mater. Come reconnect and reminisce with your former classmates while joining the Telfer School in celebrating the contributions of our alumni and their valuable connections with their business associates, family and friends.

We will also recognize our five alumni award recipients who have made outstanding contributions to the world of business, the health sector, the community and their alma mater as well as our donor award recipients who enrich the Telfer student experience and community by giving generously to the School. 

To celebrate your Milestone Anniversary from the class of 1967, 1977, 1992 or 2007, we would like to offer you two complimentary tickets to the Gala of Excellence, for you and a guest. Register below!

  • Become a Gala Class Champion:

Reunions are some of the most successful ways of strengthening the relations that already exist among alumni. More than simply satisfying your curiosity about what your classmates have become, they also help you reflect on your path after graduation and have a better understanding of what led you to be who you are and do what you do. If you're interested in becoming a class champion to help reach out to your former classmates, please contact us at or at 613-562-5800 x 2934.
