This award recognizes an individual who has made a significant contribution of energy, service, and talent towards the growth of the Canadian tourism industry, through volunteer work, service, or business accomplishments. Focusing on tourism building, the recipient demonstrates leadership, vision and innovation built on a solid foundation of strong values and sound business strategies.

Todd Brandt, CEO and President of Tourism Saskatoon, retired on September 15, 2020.
