In celebration of her service to the country, the medals have been bestowed on individuals who have made their own contributions to the community and to Canada.
Huijbregts had been unable to join the other medal recipients who were honoured at a Special Award Ceremony Dinner at the i-CANADA SUMMIT Conference in Montreal on October 21st, 2012. "These Canadian leaders were selected because of the impact they made on society and business from the application of technology," stated John Reid, President of CATA. "Many have been technology innovators as well as catalysts for national transformation."
