There are many awards – in Canada, and around the world – that recognize employers for their commitment to diversity, equity 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, equity 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 2023: Due to the uncertainty which stemmed from the COVID-19 pandemic, CCDI had decided to suspend the annual Awards of Success for 2020 to 2022. As things start to return to normal, we are planning to re-initiate the awards in 2024. Nomination submissions should open up in fall of 2023. We recognize and salute the practitioners, professionals and organizations who have continued to make tremendous efforts with respect to diversity, equity and inclusion work in the last few years under very different and trying circumstances. 

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