Awards of Excellence

The 11th Annual Awards of Excellence will be taking place at the Four Points by Sheraton Toronto Airport on Thursday, February 28, 2019. This year, we are thrilled to announce we will have Kevin Frankish join us as our emcee for the evening.

Kevin Frankish helped CityTV Toronto’s Breakfast Television become the number one morning show in Southern Ontario. With his trademark suspenders and quick wit, Frankish had a loyal early morning following and was repeatedly recognized for his career achievements and community involvement. We look forward to welcoming Kevin Frankish to the stage on February  28!

CAEM 10th Anniversary Awards of Excellence

The CAEM 10th Anniversary Signature Event proved to be a great success. The Industry was well represented by members who attended the gala event, as well as those who were honoured and recognized. This included CEM graduates as well as recipients of 2018 Awards as well as Hall of Fame inductees, dating back to 1992.

Member Sponsors were key in producing such a professionally run evening and we invite you to view and click through on any of the sponsor logos displayed in the sponsor gallery below. A sincere thank you goes out to them all.
