CIO's Future of Digital Innovation Summit & Awards Canada

November 29-30, 2022

Nomination Submissions Are Closed


The CIO Awards Canada celebrate 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.

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 feature award winners on November 29-30, 2022 at our virtual CIO’s Future of Digital Innovation Summit & Awards Canada.

  • About CIO 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 CIO Awards Canada?
  • • This is the first CIO 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 CIO 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.
