Achievements of the Canadian telecommunications industry will be honoured in October at the inaugural ceremonies of Canada ‘s Telecommunications Hall of Fame.
Organizers will pay homage to eight of its pioneers and leaders at the Inaugural Laureate Induction Ceremonies and Gala Dinner to be staged October 17 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
The event will be hosted jointly by Canada’s Telecommunications Hall of Fame and by the Coalition for Competitive Telecommunications, an advocacy group for Canadian business telecom users and customers. It will be held in conjunction with the Telemanagement Live! 2005 conference.
The Hall of Fame was launched on May 30 during The 2005 Telecom Summit conference in Toronto.
“The Canadian telecommunications industry has a rich heritage of achievement, invention and innovation that predates Confederation,” said Lorne Abugov, founder of Canada ‘s Telecommunications Hall of Fame and a senior telecommunications law partner at Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP.
Laureates will be inducted in four categories: Inventors and Innovators, Icons of Business, Servants of the Public and Advocates and Academics.
