Canada Awards for Excellence

To be recognized by your peers for your commitment to organizational excellence is a worthy celebration. By awarding those organizations most committed to economic progress, both for themselves and for the Canadian market as a whole, we all take a more prominent position and gain greater influence on the world stage. A prosperous Canada is a successful Canada and we remain committed to recognizing those organizations that are best in class and leading the way for all of us.

Since 1984, the Canada Awards for Excellence have been presented to private and public sector organizations of all sizes that have proven they are world class. This award is based on the Canada Awards for Excellence Standards and Requirements, which are used by numerous organizations as a management model for continual improvement and to achieve better operational results. This prestigious award is tangible evidence of an organization’s level of excellence.

The Governor General of Canada has been the Patron of the Canada Awards for Excellence program since 2007.


Canadian Business Excellence Awards for Private Businesses

If your business is privately-owned and has been operating in Canada for at least 3 years, with annual revenues of more than $1 million, then you are eligible to apply for national awards recognition from Excellence Canada.

Do your existing customers, employees, and suppliers already know that yours is an excellent company to work with? Share this powerful information with others, through third-party validation and recognition with a national award.

Canada’s private companies are now eligible to be profiled as Excellent Businesses by Excellence Canada and they will also receive credit toward the Canada Awards for Excellence program.
