The nominations for the Governance Professionals of Canada's 2018 Excellence in Governance Awards/Prix d'excellence en gouvernance (EGs) ) are now open! 

The winners for the awards will be announced and celebrated at a gala dinner and ceremony on Thursday, October, 25th, 2018 in Toronto at The Carlu.

The EGAs recognize the important contribution that organizations and governance professionals make in terms of best practices that build and sustain shareholder and stakeholder value in Canada. GPC encourages all organizations to take this opportunity to gain recognition for their governance practices and to be celebrated for their accomplishments.

The deadline for nominations is June 15th, 2018, and the shortlist of finalists for the awards will be announced in August 2018. We encourage companies of all sizes, sectors and industries (listed, private, public, crown, not for profit, co-op, etc.) to take part, as the EGAs are designed to recognize excellence across all organizations.

GPC will seek nominations in the following award categories:

  • Best Practices in Enterprise Risk Management
  • Best Practices in Sustainability and ESG Governance
  • Best Approach to Achieving Effective Board and Committee Operations
  • Best Practices to Enhance Boardroom Diversity
  • Best Practices in Strategic Planning, Oversight and Value Creation by the Board
  • Best Engagement by a Governance Team
  • Best Compensation Disclosure and Communication
  • Best Practices in Subsidiary Governance
  • Best Overall Corporate Governance
  • *NEW* Governance Professional of the Year
  • Peter Dey Governance Achievement Award

These awards underscore the critical role that good governance plays in sustaining the value of Canada's public companies, crown corporations, government agencies, and not-for-profit organizations, and in contributing to the competitiveness of Canada's economy and its capital markets. 

The recognition that the winners, nominees and their organizations gain from these awards raises more awareness for the key role played by governance professionals, furthers the reputation of their organizations and inspires others to follow their example.

So submit your nomination this year and be recognized!
