NOTE for 2022: With lockdowns projected to continue across Eastern and Western Canada and 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 year under very different and trying circumstances.
