How to nominate & deadline

To submit your nomination, simply go online to Fill out the simple form with as much detail about the nominee's contributions and accomplishments as possible. Deadline for nominations is March 10, 2023, 11:59 pm EST.

Who can be nominated for the Top 25 Awards?

A nominee can be anyone who has permanently immigrated to Canada and has since contributed to the success and uplifting of this country and/or its people. Achievements can be either professional or personal. Nominees must be landed immigrants (permanent residents or citizens) of Canada.

How are winners chosen?

A distinguished panel of judges will review all nominees and present a list of 75 finalists who will be profiled online in April, after which all Canadians can vote for their favourite nominees. After tabulation of the votes and a second round of judging, the 25 winners will then be announced in August 2023.

Special honours for entrepreneurs and youth

Again in 2023, Canadian Immigrant will select one of the Top 25 winners for its special Entrepreneur Award and Youth Award, which recognizes the achievements of young immigrants (between 15 and 30). No special application process is required.
