The Awards Banquet was put on by the Canadian Boilermakers NTTF (National Training Trust Fund) and was hosted by Grant Jacobs, National Director of Training. The event was held following the Alberta Owners Appreciation Day on August 25th. The top graduate apprentices from across Canada were honoured for their commitment to the Boilermaker Trade. The Boilermaker Industry also honoured Don McFarlane for his many years of service to the Boilermaker Industry.
