Our Notable Alumni
We honour our finest alumni
The highlight event on our annual calendar is the Telfer School of Management Gala of Excellence. At the 2016 event, which was held at the Ottawa Convention Centre on October 15, 2016, we honoured five outstanding alumni for their contributions to the world of business, their community and alma mater:
Kyle Braatz (BCom 2009) earned the Young Achiever’s Award, created to honour individuals under 40 who have achieved greatness in their lives within an exceptionally short period of time.
Myron Tetrault (BAdm 1988) received the Dean’s Philos Award, which recognizes individuals who have demonstrated outstanding philanthropic achievement and social commitment.
The Liberal candidate for Ottawa-Vanier, Mona Fortier (MBA 1998) won the byelection with 51.2% of the vote.
Since making his first gift to uOttawa more than 30 years ago, Villeneuve’s loyal support has improved the student experience in many ways. His latest gift of $1.5 million to his alma mater in 2015 ensures that his legacy will live on.
