March 24, 2016 marked the inaugural MAX Gala at the Ritz Carlton in Toronto, where It was our great privilege to have Prime Minister Justin Trudeau open the gala for us. Also attending in person were the Federal Minister of International Trade, Chrystia Freeland; the Premier of Ontario, Kathleen Wynne; the Ontario Minister of Finance, Charles Sousa; and the Mayor of Toronto, John Tory.
Speaking with the hundreds in attendance Mr. Trudeau said:
“I want to congratulate everyone being honoured tonight. Thank you for the positive contributions you make to Canadian society each and every day […] Tonight is a testament to the fact that diversity is our greatest strength!”
