Colleges and Institutes Canada

Recognizing excellence

Even though our annual conference was canceled in 2020, we still took some time to recognize our members, as well as exceptional individuals making a difference within their college or institute. Our awards of excellence were announced in May 2020, and since recipients could not be honoured in person, we created an online showcase to share their accomplishments.

As for our Distinguished Service and Outstanding Partner awards, both were announced during our annual general meeting, which was held virtually in June 2020. We were pleased to recognize former Niagara College president Dan Patterson for his many years of service, as well as Mitacs for its important contribution to the post-secondary education sector, providing valuable work-integrated learning opportunities for Canadian students across the country.
