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:

NOTE for 2022: Due to the uncertainty which continues to stem from the COVID-19 pandemic, CCDI has decided to suspend the annual Awards of Success for 2022. We recognize and salute the practitioners, professionals and organizations who have continued to make tremendous efforts with respect to inclusion, diversity, equity and accessibility work in the last two years under very different and trying circumstances. 

Any further updates on Awards of Success will be communicated via our website and newsletter.
