This edition of Win-Door coincides with Fenestration Canada’s 45th birthday, and the association will be marking the occasion with some special presentations. The induction of new Pioneers will be a highlight as industry leaders familiar to everyone will be recognized for their years of good work. Also, Fenestration Canada will join Toronto Emergency Medical Services to present a $5,000 cheque to the Wellness Centre for Spinal Cord Recovery. The money will help fund the addition of an electrical stimulation machine to the Centre, which will be useful in treating victims of falls from windows and balconies.
Blocks of rooms with special rates are available at the Win-Door partner hotels: InterContinental Toronto Centre, Fairmont Royal York and Renaissance Toronto Downtown. Attendees are encouraged to book by contacting the hotel of their choice.
Full coverage of Win-Door 2012 with floor plans, exhibitor listings and exhibitor product previews will appear in Fenestration Review, Canada’s annual magazine for the residential window and door industry, mailing to Glass Canada readers in mid-October.
