Canada Awards for Innovation & Entrepreneurship (CANIEs)
The Canada Innovation & Entrepreneurship Awards— the CANIE Awards—is the Innovators & Entrepreneurs Foundation's flagship program recognizing excellence in Canadian innovation and entrepreneurship
The CANIE Awards is your opportunity to win $10,000 in cash as well as have your business promoted locally, regionally and nationally. Alternatively, if you know a business owner who is deserving of this recognition, we encourage you to nominate them to benefit from this injection of capital and the promotion of their business.
Eligibility: You can apply for yourself and your company or alternatively, you can nominate a person and their company (with or without their knowledge). Applicants must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, demonstrate that they are an active innovator or entrepreneur with a registered business that has been in operation for a minimum of 1 year, and meet the award selection criteria.
Note: The 2022 application process will happen in 2 phases. The first 4 categories opened for application/nomination on March 28, 2022 and will close on the midnight on the 31st of May 2022. The second group of categories will be opened for applications/nominations in June and close in August. Details around the second phase will follow shortly.
