The 2013 Urban Animal Strategies Summit was held at the Fairmont Château Lake Louise in Lake Louise Alberta.
The Summit Awards are focused on recognizing those within communities and within the companion animal industry who are achieving success. The Summit Awards are presented annually by the Summit Alumni using an academy-style system of nominations and election by secret ballot for each category.
