1983 marked the first expansion of Les Clefs d’Or Canada outside of Toronto when the Quebec Province (In fact, the city of Montréal), became the 2nd Region of our association.
It was the first step towards the development of Les Clefs d’Or Canada with the objective of, one day, be present and active ”From coast to coast.”
The renowned Hotel Concierges Association, Les Clefs d’Or Canada, is celebrating its 40th Anniversary of foundation and membership to Les Clefs d’Or – UICH (Union Internationale des Concierges d’Hôtels) in 2016, with celebrations throughout the year.
Our first program will be a Blog and Social Media campaign called:
«40 Years in 40 Days».
We will relive with you our rich history, one year at a time, and remember the amazing people who made it all happen since the day of our adhesion to the International association of Hotel Concierges, Les Clefs d’Or – UICH.
The story begins on November 8th, 1976 in Lisbon, Portugal, when our first President, Mr. Herb Goldring was invited to sit at the International President’s table and Canada became the 18th Section of Les Clefs d’Or – UICH.
For 40 consecutive days, we will post a historic capsule on the Blog, one per year, showcasing the major events of our history. This program will be culminating with the Gala night of the Montreal Panamerican Congress, on March 12th at the Marriott Château Champlain, with a special presentation by UICH President, Mr. Colin Toomey.
