Hi Kim - only rave reviews for the wonderful dining experience - everything was very delicious, hot, great selection and Leanne and Danette, not sure about the spelling, were so gracious and pleasant and worked hard to keep everything flowing so well.
Many, many thanks for the great service and a very merry Christmas to everyone.

I hope you’re having a great morning so far. I just wanted to send you and your team a big thank you for assisting us with our BBQs this year. I had a great experience working with your team and hope to work with them all in the future. Please give an especially big thank you to Danette. She was fantastic! I don’t think our BBQs would have gone as smooth if I didn’t have her and I am very grateful.

it's hard to believe how far we have come since the first meeting just over a year ago, looking how we could bring a breakfast program to Langley SS, and what a positive year we have had in our first full year of the program.
Thank you for your tireless efforts in making sure our students are well fed and ready to learn.

To whom it may concern,
I had the pleasure to be at Prince of Wales Secondary school for two days last week and two days this week on training. Each of those 4 days I chose to purchase my lunch at the cafeteria. I wanted to let you know how impressed I was by the staff and the food. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and very accomodating. I was so impressed that I asked who I could send a commendation to and I was given your e-mail.
I would like to especially highlight Cora, the cook. All the food was delicious, but her chicken curry was outstanding. It would be a dish I would gladly eat in any fine restaurant. School cafeteria food is often seen as bland and unnutricious. This cannot be said for PW. The food was very flavourful, healthy, and fresh. Kudos the whole team at PW.

By providing me with this scholarship, you have not only provided me with financial aid, but ou have also validated my journey of seeking a post-secondary education. So thank ou, thank you very much!

On behalf of the UBC Thunderbirds Sport Clubs Staff and Athletes, I cannot thank you enough for your catering services at our Awards Banquet this week. You and your team were absolutely fantastic and very accommodating in all aspects of our event. We really appreciate how efficiently everyone was served at the buffet, and the quick clean up time which allowed the programming of our event to be very smooth and timely. As well, from what I’ve heard, everyone loved the food! Please let us know what the best way to leave you a positive review would be so that others can learn about your great service.

On behalf of the welcome back BBQ team, I would like to extend our thanks for a job well done. Kathy and her team did an amazing job, not to mention the food was excellent. Please extend our thanks to your team. We were all impressed with the professional and timely manner in which Canuel conducted the evening. Once again, thank you Kim.
First, would like to thank you for all your help. You made this so easy for us. Your staff were absolutely fantastic and efficient. Everyone loved the food, it was delicious and the set up looked beautiful. Many asked which company was catering (there will be a few weddings coming up), we made sure they knew your name.
I just wanted to let you know that we appreciated all the work you and your team did. I believe that people don't always receive the appreciation they deserve so are you able to give your chef, cooks and staff a big thank you on our behalf?
Thank you all for making our special day a great success

I just wanted to thank you and your team for once again giving us a wonderful meal with great service. We had lots of food, and nothing but compliments.
Please pass this on to all the people involved. It is so seldom that people say thanks, one usually hears from customers to complain, and this is certainly not the case.
So again, thank you and we will keep calling you for any events. "

I can't thank you enough. We will definitely recommend the venue and the catering to others! Any other events we host will definitely be at that site.
Thank you, thank you, thank you,"
I wanted to say how much I appreciated Canuel's service this week. From trying to plan with numbers that were unreliable at best to reacting to the needs day to day, your team was outstanding. And best of all I received a lot of compliments on the quality of the food which I wanted to pass on to you. The volunteers thought the food was delicious and it became a point of discussion where volunteers were encouraging others to go check it out because it was so goo. I've never seen that kind of response before. I've passed on these comments to Dan Howe as well and I won't hesitate to recommend you for future work.
