Now in its sixth year, the Canadian HR Awards has become the biggest and most prestigious showcase of excellence in the HR sector in Canada.

By recognizing the companies and individuals across the entire spectrum of human resources and celebrating the industry's successes, the Canadian HR Awards continues to inspire an industry fostered on leadership, service, innovation, support and principle, all of which have continuously driven the industry forward.

Our winners and finalists deserve the night of their lives – and that’s what we give them. Our annual black-tie gala brings together a stellar community of the biggest names in the industry, past award recipients and rising stars throughout Canada. Over 720 professionals attended last year’s gala.

The Canadian HR Awards is brought to you by Ultimate Software in partnership with HRD Canada, the resource of choice for the country's most forward-thinking HR professionals. Winners and finalists will be showcased in HRD magazine and online, as well as selected national media outlets.

If you want to show the nation how great you, your team and your organization are – or you want to nominate a fellow professional who has gone above and beyond in the past year – then nominate now. It only takes a few minutes!
