Creating a More Diverse, Equitable and Inclusive Economy
Jun 01, 2023
At the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, we believe that diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility are central and essential to fairness of opportunity, competitiveness of business, economic growth and our nation's prosperity. Working with the Canadian Chamber Network of chambers of commerce and boards of trade and their members, from across the country, we advocate for an economy that works for all Canadians, and particularly, for underrepresented segments of the population who continue to experience barriers to full participation and success in the economy.
The Canadian Chamber's Inclusive Growth Awards recognize chambers of commerce, boards of trade and their members across the country, that do exceptional work to remove barriers and create a more diverse, equitable and inclusive economy. These awards also recognize Indigenous and other underrepresented entrepreneurs who have demonstrated excellence in innovation and social impact.
Nominations are open to chambers of commerce and boards of trade in Canada and their members:
Nomination forms should be fully completed and submitted by Friday, July 28, 2023 at 6:00 p.m. ET. In addition to the nomination form, underrepresented entrepreneurs need to complete the self-identification form which is part of the nomination form.
