Event

Enter the Experience

Give honour to whom honour is due is not only sage advice based on long experience but is also beneficial wisdom for today. It is a commitment to this principle of public recognition to worthy community stakeholders of the Wood Buffalo/Athabasca region of Alberta that the Oilsands Celebration Banquet is dedicated.

The Oilsands Banquet, as it has come to be known, is an annual event designed and dedicated to selecting and honouring a significant and deserving community stakeholder from this unique region of Alberta. In today’s busy world of oilsands production and public affairs, an occasion offering the opportunity to stop an reflect on the achievements of significant contributors to our community life, visit with peers and friends and simply enjoy ourselves, is indeed a refreshing andvaluable experience.

Each year approximately 500 leaders from Industry, Government, Education, First Nations and the Community at large gather in the Grand Ballroom at Shell Place, MacDonald Island, Fort McMurray, to honour a worthy recipient, listen to a major address brought by a high profile keynote speaker and enjoy a first class meal. Past keynote speakers include Steve Williams, President & CEO, SuncorEnergy Inc., Eric Newell, former President & CEO, Syncrude Canada, Grand Chief Phil Fontaine, Assembly of First Nations, Jim Carter, Chair, Alberta Carbon Capture and Storage Development Council, National Chief, Shawn A- in-chut Atleo, Assembly of First Nations, Scott Clements, President & CEO, Fort McMurray Airport Authority, Rex Murphy, Canadian commentator and author and The Honourable Preston Manning.
