The CIO50 Awards Canada celebrate 50 Canadian organizations and the teams within them that are using IT in innovative ways to deliver business value, whether by creating competitive advantage, optimizing business processes, enabling growth or improving relationships with customers. It is an acknowledged mark of enterprise excellence. Because the award is given to company projects rather than individuals, it’s an honour that everyone on your staff can take pride in. #CIO50Canada

Every year, CIO recognizes the tech world’s most innovative organizations and accomplished leaders. We’re excited to announce that we’re bringing this popular Awards program into Canada for 2022! We will celebrate the CIO50 inductees on November 29-30, 2022 at our virtual CIO50 Symposium & Awards Canada event.

  • About CIO50 Awards Canada Selection Criteria
  • To be selected, a Canadian team/company must demonstrate project excellence in two main areas:
    Technology innovation: The extent to which your organization used IT in a new way or enabled new ways of doing business, whether internally or externally.
    Business value delivery: The measurable impact, backed up by supporting data, that your project has had on your organization’s business results.
Why should your organization apply for the CIO50 Awards Canada?
  • • This is the first CIO50 Awards program for Canada that showcases your innovative Canadian tech project and team (not individual CIOs).
    • Award-winning teams are given short speaking opportunities at our event.
    • The odds of winning a CIO50 Award are higher in the inaugural year.
    • Nominations are limited to Canadian teams operating in Canada – you don’t have to compete with firms globally or in North America.
    • Your Canadian team has done some amazing projects over the past year and they deserve to be recognized.
    • There are no fees to apply for CIO50 Awards Canada in 2022.
