Three winners at the 18th-annual Manitoba Tourism Awards gala Oct. 4 in Winnipeg had ties to one of the province’s most northerly communities and only seaport.

Churchill Wild won the Winnipeg Airports Authority award of distinction, the RAW: churchill pop-up restaurant project tied for the partnership award and Churchill native Remi Foubert-Allen tied for the aspiring youth award for dedication to showcasing all that the area has to offer through interpretation, customer service and continued education.

The awards were presented by Manitoba Growth, Enterprise and Trade Minister Cliff Cullen and Travel Manitoba board chair Bob Sparrow.

“Manitoba’s success as a tourism destination is linked directly to the achievements of those businesses and individuals who have been recognized by the Manitoba Tourism Awards,” said Colin Ferguson, Travel Manitoba president and CEO. “What all of 75 nominees, 30 finalists and 12 winners have in common is the ability to offer exceptional service and engaging and distinctive experiences that are the core of our province’s tourism industry.”Nominations for the awards are submitted by industry peers and finalists and winners are judged by a tourism industry-based panel. Winners receive a trophy and the right to use the Manitoba Tourism Award symbol for advertising as well as promotion via the Travel Manitoba website.
