Happy New year everyone! Talk about starting the new year off with a bang… It’s only been a week and we’re already incredibly #CPRSproud thanks to our colleague Daniel Granger, APR, FCPRS, CM who will be receiving the prestigious Order of Canada, recognizing his work in communications and dedication to sport – in particular, the Special Olympics.
