The response this year for potential speakers was phenomenal — a whopping 20 people responded, interested in presenting their thoughts and stories to you. Of course, that’s an unprecedented number of speakers, and so we’ve had to make a decision to have 18 speakers move forward this year, with the other potential Igniter’s lined-up for consideration next year.

We bring you the following exciting speakers & talks:

  • Dawna Kinnunen — Being You, the Real You: Yes You Can!
  • Elizabeth MacMillan — Edible Gardening in Elementary Schools
  • Tim Kelly — How I Wet my Big New Bed
  • Melissa Ouimette — Shy Girl
  • Winston Sullivan — Normal: How Youth Can Use Their Voice to Change Attitudes and Open Minds
  • Candy Burns — Search for Wild Mushrooms
  • Andre Riopel — I Love Rain on my Face and Slush in my Boots
  • Linda Brauner — Let’s Shine a Light on the Sault!
  • Robert Bushnell — Our Soul Purpose
  • Tammy Paterson — Travel With a Purpose

These are our 18 nominees and speakers for this year’s Ignite Sault Ste. Marie! So much variety, this will definitely be a night to remember for years to come.

And so we come to our next order of business:

Ticket Sales are Open!

That’s right! Tickets are now available for purchase online at:

Last year we had many people step up and become a micro sponsor of Ignite, and we’re bringing that back this year. Become an Igniter for $20 and get some special gifts as a thank-you for helping offset the event costs.

Eventbrite - Ignite Sault 6

You’ll notice that there’s an interesting twist to purchases this year: from now til November 11 — one week — a limited number of tickets are available for $5. This batch of early-bird tickets gives you access to some cool door prizes!

After November 11, between November 11 and 18, tickets will be available for one week at $7 — you still have access to door prizes, but for a slightly higher price. Again, these are limited in number, so don’t miss out.

If you have not bought your tickets by November 18, there’s still hope: for $10 you can get what we call the “Deadline Dash” batch; you don’t have access to door prizes, but you have a chance to see some amazing Ignite presentations! These tickets are limited, and any not sold by the event date — November 30 — will be available at the door.

Don’t delay, act now!

Remember the Date:

Friday November 30, doors open at 5 PM

Ignite Sault Ste. Marie 6 @ The Grand Theatre

More great information to come about fantastic local food vendors, competitions and an after party you’ll want to hang around for.
