Commissionaires Ottawa was grateful to receive a Certificate of Appreciation from the Citadel Canine Society to recognize our company’s platinum sponsorship and employee donations in support of the first annual Boots4Pups event. Hilaire “Nick” Nicolas, Senior Business Operations Manager atCommissionaires Ottawa, successfully hiked the challenging 350km Rideau Trail from Kingston to Ottawa in 10 days, making history by completing his journey two days earlier than anyone else on record. Nick donated $12,550.00 to the Citadel Canine Society, who used the money to train four new PTSD service dogs for veterans and first responders in Ontario. Thanks to fellow employees Nancy Spence, Jeff Desarmia, Doug Ware, Janice Voth, and many others who supported Nick with companionship, logistics, operations and fundraising. Bob Arseneau even came out of retirement to help drive the RV and Heather Bracken, a community volunteer, hiked the Rideau Trail with Nick.
