Tim Fontaine will host this year’s CAJ Awards Banquet & Gala where we recognize the finalists and recipients of the 2018 CAJ Awards. Before flying over to the side of satire with the inimitable Walking Eagle News, Fontaine worked for decades in "real" journalism with APTN, CBC Indigenous and CPAC. He will help us toast (and roast!) some of the best work in Canadian journalism.

The CAJ Banquet & Awards Gala take place from 6:30 - 10:00 p.m. on Saturday May 4 at the Radisson Hotel. The deadline to purchase gala tickets is Friday April 26 at 5:00 p.m. ET. CAJ members can attend the full conference and gala for $250.00—earlybird rates rend April 26.
