By: Katherine Craig | Jul 4, 2019

Tourism London extends a warm thank you to Marc Forgette for his four years of service representing London in the Ottawa market. On June 24, he embarked on a new journey with his own business. Makatew Workshops will host Indigenous workshops on creating items such as hand drums, moccasins, medicine bags, rattles and dreamcatchers, just to name a few. Starting in 2020, Makatew Workshops will offer even more workshops with a First Nation theme. Reach out at or 613-882-3302 for more information about this cultural venture.

Congratulations to the MPI Ottawa Chapter members who were involved in planning the EVENT which wrapped up its second year in Montréal in April. The EVENT won the Rise Award for Innovation Educational Programming at the recent MPI World Education Congress in Toronto! This unique conference brings three chapters together, MPI Ottawa Chapter, MPI Toronto Chapter and MPI Montréal & Quebec Chapter, for two incredible days of collaboration and learning. Congratulations to all who played a role in making the EVENT come alive. Looking ahead, Toronto will host the next EVENT from April 2-4, 2020.

Congratulations to Katherine Craig who recently accepted a position as Community Engagement Coordinator with the CHEO Foundation. Craig’s creative thinking, combined with her organizational and interpersonal skills, is a combination that the Foundation will take advantage of to grow the community engagement portfolio in the coming years. While she will be missed at The War Amps, Craig looks forward to this new adventure. To get in touch with her, email or call (613) 737-2781.
