Vancouver's North Shore Tourism Association (VNSTA) revealed its new campaign last week centred around visiting Vancouver's North Shore like a local. The three pillars include: play like a local, learn like a local, and love it like a local, with a commitment to respect Indigenous communities, air, land and waters, and to practice safety in all activities (& more). As part of its new sustainability initiative, VNSTA Executive Director Jennifer Belak (seen with TIABC CEO Walt Judas) is encouraging locals and visitors to take the pledge to play, learn and love like a local.
TIABC CEO Walt Judas joined members of BC's foodservice community, including Restaurants Canada CEO Kelly Higginson and VP Mark von Schellwitz at a networking and recognition reception in downtown Vancouver this week. Celebrating resilience, adaptability and unity, the event also served to acknowledge those who have significantly advanced the industry. Restaurants Canada and the Chefs’ Table Society of BC honoured renowned Chef John Bishop with a Lifetime Achievement award for the indelible mark he's made on the Canadian foodservice sector. 📷: @kasselmancreative
