This month our hearts were broken by the loss a beloved colleague and industry leader. Peter Vaz courageously faced almost two years of aggressive ALS and continued to emit positivity, commitment and inspiration to his peers. Peter was a longstanding member of the IAB Executive Board of Directors and had a passion for emerging technologies and relentlessly pursued the legitimacy of measurement and data for the online advertising industry in Canada. He will be sorely missed.
IAB Canada would like to take this opportunity to thank nabs for the incredible support provided to Peter and his family. We are so excited by their recent announcement regarding their partnership with McCann Canada to establish the Peter Vaz Memorial Scholarship designed to support new members of our digital industry. This initiative is such a wonderful way to honour Peter and his dedication to inclusivity, hard work and education.
