Papal Visit to Canada

Client: Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishop
Venue: Canada,
Date: July 2022


When Encore was approached to facilitate the Pope’s apology to indigenous communities across Canada in an effort to start the reconciliation process, time was of the essence.

Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, Office of the Papal Visit (OPV) approached Encore to design sites for up to 10,000 attendees. In addition, they needed a production partner that could support these large, important gatherings with utmost professionalism and sensitivity.


  • Temporary power and site infrastructure for 5 physical event locations (4 locations in Alberta and 1 location in Iqaluit)

  • Production support for Media centers in Edmonton and Quebec City

  • Full turn-key production support including producers and stage managers
  • Audio, video and lighting services

  • Custom scenic design and stage-builds


“It was very clear to us that what Encore brought to the table was not just technical support or equipment, but we wanted to work with a company that really understood the complexity of something like this, and I’m working with people [at Encore] that is exactly what they do.”
