Nominations are closed for the 2022 TECHNATION Ingenious Awards.

Following our hiatus during COVID-19, TECHNATION is back with revamped Ingenious Award categories and we have added  two new Ingenious Awards.

Since its inception in 2011, the Ingenious Awards program was created to celebrate enterprises that demonstrate measurable evidence of productivity improvement, efficiency gains, revenue growth, overall business transformation or other organizational outcomes through the use of technology.

For 2022, we have given our categories a makeover and added two new individual categories.  We are still looking for IT innovation from all regions across Canada that represent a broad cross-section of organizations.

Ingenious Technology Categories (Four awards) – Nominees and award recipients include Canadians who work in business, government and other public-sector organizations and not-for-profit entities whose innovation uses one of the following technology areas of specialization – Ai, Blockchain, Cloud, IoT

Two new! Ingenious awards will be launched in 2022 to celebrate specific Canadian leaders who have been significant disruptors in Canada’s technological innovation to drive both national or regional prosperity – Public Sector Disruptor and the Canadian Tech Hall of Fame.

TECHNATION’s Ingenious Awards celebrates Canada’s vibrant innovation ecosystem showcasing the use of technology.  This is an opportunity to show the creative uses of technology that organizations of all types and sizes from across the country are using to thrive and compete.

Awards are closed for 2022
