Recap: TCA's 2021 Annual Golf Tournament—Thank you all for attending!
The Toronto Construction Association (TCA) Annual Golf Tournament usually takes place in May but was moved to Wednesday, August 11, 2021, to be in accordance with the physical distancing recommendations for COVID-19 to ensure the safety of all the participants.  

The tournament was completely sold out and turned out amazing! Golfers enjoyed a picture-perfect weather day, (blue skies and lots of sunshine) at the beautiful Angus Glen Golf Club. It was a great opportunity for attendees to safely mingle, catch up and have some fun with colleagues. 

Respecting the COVID-19 standards in place, we did not get to host the “after golf reception” this year. Nonetheless, a great time was had by all.

We would like to offer a special thank you to each of our sponsors! Your continued support is appreciated. 

A huge thank you to everyone who participated and helped to make this once again sold-out event a magnificent success.

We look forward to next year (2022) and hope to resume our full reception.

Special thank you to our amazing sponsors

Recap: YCL Committee Comedy Special with Jeff Leeson
On Thursday, August 19, 2021, the Young Construction Leaders (YCL) Committee hosted its first-ever virtual comedy show featuring comedian Jeff Leeson online (via Zoom). In his 30 minutes routine, Jeff got right into the rhythm. He was absolutely hilarious. Everyone who joined had a good laugh—just what we all needed during this extraordinary time we are facing. 

Overall, it was a very personal, intimate comedy show enjoyed by all.

Thanks to everyone who participated in this fun evening. Until next time, keep laughing!
