At the 2017 Gala for Artists for Peace and Justice (founded by Paul Haggis, former Chair of CFC Film Programs,) on Sunday, September 10, 2017, CFC Board Member Gary Slaight, CEO and President, Slaight Communications, was honoured with the inaugural Changemaker Award, presented by Birks.
The Changemaker award pays tribute to Mr. Slaight’s long history of affecting change not only as one of the most influential people in the Canadian media landscape, but also through his generous support of Canada’s arts, culture and entertainment industries, its health care industry, its Indigenous peoples, as well as NGOs around the world.
