What Others are Saying About Us

"Thank you so much for your outstanding service and help in hosting our client reception! What an amazing and unique venue you have! We are very much looking forward to our next event with you."

"The Bill Reid Gallery was the perfect place to host a reception featuring aboriginal cuisine for delegates to the 23rd Annual Virginia Woolf Conference. The delegates came from all over the world, mainly the United States, and were unfamiliar with Bill Reid's work and the rich cultural and culinary heritage of Canada's aboriginal peoples. The gallery staff provided an educational and welcoming environment, and the reception was easily the highlight of the conference activities for many of the attendees. Thank you so much!"
Helen Wussow, Simon Fraser University
