It was one year ago today that the Executive Board was elected by the Members present at the 2019 Banff Congress. It has been a busy and productive year and we look forward to take on many projects in the next year.
We are very proud to represent and serve our 140 Les Clefs d’Or Canada Members from Halifax to Victoria.
Les Clefs d’Or Canada has a long standing tradition of service excellence. Our members are some of the best concierge in the hospitality industry. In the concierge business, the way you do your job is important, but also who you know can make a big difference.
In the Niagara region, a long time friend and one of the biggest supporters of Les Clefs d’Or, Crispin Bottomley, is one of those people than can and has made a big difference in how we do our job. In Niagara, tourism is vital to our growth and success, not only in Les Clefs d’Or, but as a major contributor to our economic well being. Continue Reading

This story is one of determination, self-accomplishment, passion for the concierge profession, but above all, a story of friendship. That kind of friendship that transcends and that does not know distance. Friendship that makes us grow and learn. Friendship that teaches us who we are and what we can accomplish. I am going to tell you the story of my participation as the Canadian candidate for Les Clefs d’Or Award – André Damonte 2018, held during the 65th UICH Les Clefs d’Or International Congress in Seoul, South Korea, in April 2018.

The Quebec region was honored to welcome Les Clefs d’Or Canada’s National Board Meeting November 10 – 13, 2017. The board members were hosted by our very own Regional Director Francine Asselin at Hotel 71 in the Old Port, where the meetings were conducted and a lot of work was achieved!
Once again this year, on September 17th, 2017, Les Clefs d’Or Canada Concierges ran or walked 5 to 10 Km to fulfil a pledge they made to their friends, colleagues, partners and family members which allowed them to collect over $20,000 for the Terry Fox Foudation dedicated to fight cancer. Exactly, it is $20,473 of donations that was amassed.
