2014 Distinction Awards Ceremony and Gala Highlights


The Distinction Awards have set the standard for recognizing excellence in public service information technology and information management in Canada. Over the past 22 years, the Distinction Awards have recognized 543 public sector individuals and teams who have achieved excellence in IM/IT across municipal, provincial and federal jurisdictions.

Nominations submitted are judged by committees comprised of senior executives from both the public and private sectors who conduct an extensive evaluation to select the most outstanding projects to first become Honourees of the Distinction Awards and, from this elite group of Honourees, select the most distinctive projects within each category to become the Medalists of the Distinction Awards.

Following the announcement of this year’s Honourees who are in line for the coveted Distinction Award, a special reception in their honour is held where we recognize and congratulate the outstanding projects and their teams including a display of Certificates. This event creates momentum towards the anticipated announcement of the Medalists which will only be made on the evening of the Distinction Awards Gala.
