NEW since 2020

If a nominee has previously received awards by the CSC and/or the CIC, the nominator is required to outline the nominee’s new achievements supporting the proposed recognition. The goal is to avoid recognizing the same achievements multiple times, and still celebrate new contributions.

The CIC awards will not be adjudicated in a year if there are fewer than 3 nominations for an award.

Please note that changes may be required to the specified selection committees (in consultation with the specific division(s)) due to conflicts of interest, committee gender balance, or other issues that may arise.
