Awards of Success

There are many awards – in Canada, and around the world – that recognize employers for their commitment to diversity and inclusion. Yet there are relatively few honours that acknowledge the people who work tirelessly to help make their workplaces, and Canadian society, more inclusive.

CCDI’s Awards of Success have been designed to recognize individuals who have made a significant contribution to diversity and inclusion here in Canada – whether internally to their organization or externally to the community at large.

Two winners per category will be selected - one for Eastern Canada (ON, QC, NB, PE, NS, NL) and one for Western Canada (MB, SK, AB, BC, YT, NT, NU). Nominations are accepted in the following categories:
