Mistissini’s Osprey Lodge brought home a bronze medal in the “Accommodations-Outfitters” category at the Grands Prix du tourisme quebecois gala held in Montreal, May 9.

The Osprey Lodge was honoured for its general excellence and exceptional contribution to improving the profile of Quebec tourism within Quebec, Canada and abroad.

As a result of its win, the outfitter will increase its visibility by joining a massive publicity campaign of the 2008 Quebec tourism winners, involving radio, television, newpapers and the internet.

An 18-member delegation represented James Bay and Eeyou Istchee at the 23rd annual celebration of the best and brightest in Quebec tourism. The event featured local musicians and fine cuisine prepared by the Institut de tourisme et d’hotellerie du Quebec.
