Congratulations to our 2022 Awards of Excellence Recipients!

Awards of Excellence Program, Award Recipients

It is my pleasure to announce Career Professionals of Canada’s 2022 Awards of Excellence Program recipients. I’d like to offer special thanks to our 2022 team of judges who were presented with the difficult challenge of selecting the winners, honourable mentions, and nominees this year — this was not an easy task!

With our new guidelines in place for the 2022 awards program, the bar was raised. Still, the competition proved rigorous as we received 46 submissions to evaluate.

CPC’s membership comprises some of the very best in our profession. Please do send your congratulations to 2022’s Awards of Excellence winners, honourable mentions, and nominees!
