Tim Wasylko CCC

Director of Food & Beverage

Starting with a position of Chef de Partie at the Canadian Pacific Château Whistler Resort in 1997, it was his very first opportunity to work alongside other industry professionals who taught him so much, not only from a culinary perspective, but also on aspects of customer service and what it means to be on the cutting edge.

Tim took his skills south and was Chef Instructor at the Escuela Culinaria Internacional, in Toluca, Mexico. Before permanently relocating back to Canada, Tim took one short-term contract with the Canadian Armed Forces as a Chef. During this time, Tim became a Certified Food Stylist from the Culinary Institute of America. His time away gave him a greater career perspective; it taught him about the sheer power of food and the magnificent way it can bring people together or evoke strong emotions in one way or another.

Returning to Ottawa, Tim held different roles including Acting Executive Chef at the National Arts Centre where he had the privilege of working alongside the late Chef Kurt Waldele, great friend and mentor to many. In 2008, Tim joined Fairmont Le Château Montebello as Executive Sous-Chef. Montebello was Tim’s first taste of a French-speaking brigade. During this time, Tim was also a Chef Instructor at Algonquin College in Ottawa. Tim left both Fairmont Le Château Montebello and Algonquin College and became the Executive Chef to the Official Residence of the Prime Minister of Canada at 24 Sussex. A true highlight of his career, this opportunity allowed Tim the honour to cook for some of the world’s most powerful men. During this time, Tim was also part of an elite Chefs Club known as Chefs des Chefs and became a Certified Chef de Cuisine from the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology and the Canadian Federation of Chefs.

Today Tim serves as the Director of Food and Beverage at the Infinity Convention Centre working alongside Chef Jason Peters to ensure amazing food and exceptional services are delivered to every visitor.
