Great news for Les Clefs d’Or Canada’s Atlantic Region; The Sutton Place Halifax just opened and they have a Clefs d’Or Concierge at the desk!
James Robar, originally a member of the Atlantic Region, is back home after spending a few years in the city of Toronto.
“It feels amazing to be back in my home province. To be part of the opening team of The Sutton Place Hotel – Halifax is a one-of-a-kind opportunity that many never get to experience. I am very excited to show this new luxury property, in the city I love, to the rest of the world.” – James Robar.
This application is valid for all grant requests. If you are applying for a grant because you were furloughed or laid off as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic, to qualify, you must be a concierge member of Les Clefs d’Or, in good standing and be unemployed, due to the crisis. Maximum need-based grants for COVID-19 applicants is $500 and will only be granted once (a symbolic gesture of care and friendship).
Our 2019 Corporate Social Responsibility event transformed into a Hawaiian dance party thanks to the Heremana Polynesian Dancers who donated their time to welcome guests with live hula dancing and interactive performances throughout the evening aboard Harbour Cruises vessel the MV Britannia.
It has never been a challenge to get a
large group of Hotel Concierges and hospitality affiliates to start talking
about their love and passion for the industry. The people they have met, the
memories they have made and the moments that made them fall in love with their
profession ooze out of their personalities.
What can be a challenge is engaging and
encouraging this same group of professionals to spread their inexcusable high
standards, passion and love of the industry. That is what I feel Dr. Bryan
Williams spoke of to our organization at the 12th Annual National
Congress, nestled in the beautiful Canadian Rocky Mountains, in the Fairmont
Banff Springs, earlier in February.
Dr. Williams grabbed our attentions right
form the beginning, with his bright smile and welcoming personality. He drew us
into his world of excellence, and we enjoyed every crispy minute of it.

Among the distinguished speakers were John Jackson and Connie DeSousa, the co-owners and chefs at the Char Group in Calgary.
