Commencing this year, we are accepting nominations for these prestigious awards from the Canadian public.

Nominations will be open to submissions from Canadians who have knowledge of an individual or / organization who fits the nomination criteria.

Nominations will be accepted from June 25, 2020 to August 24, 2020 midnight EDT.

Nominations will be accepted for the following two awards:
