In the fall of 2022, The Targeted Strategies Group returned to support Canada’s Great Kitchen Party as Platinum Partners in Toronto, Calgary, and Vancouver and attendance at the Edmonton and Saskatoon events. Hosting our guests and employees, we enjoyed five unforgettable evenings in celebration of Canadian culture in food, sport and music.

Canada’s Great Kitchen Party is a national culinary competition across Canada. It is a night with a 16-year successful history where guests enjoy the best food that the city’s chefs offer. As the most respected culinary competition in Canada, 5-10 chefs compete locally with a dish of their choice paired with a Canadian wine, beer or spirit. Winning regional gold is a major achievement.

“We are proud to support such an important cause that empowers youth and enriches the lives of Canadian athletes, musicians and chefs”, says Susan Kichuk, CEO of The Targeted Strategies Group.

Canada’s Great Kitchen Party is built on a solid foundation of bringing people together with the purpose of elevating our culture and providing young Canadians with the opportunity to be extraordinary.
