Toronto-Ottawa (June 19, 2015) The nominations for the 2015 Ingenious Awards and the 2015 CanadianCIO of the Year have been rolling in, but Information Technology Association of Canada (ITAC) wants to make sure no great company or no worthy CIO goes unrecognized.

“We have had members approach us and say they’ve got a fantastic company they want to nominate, but with year- end or Q2 deadlines, they just don’t have the time to make the submission,” says Lynda Leonard, ITAC’s Senior Vice-President spearheading the awards program.

“We understand how crazy this time of year can be, so we’ve decided to extend the nomination deadline by two weeks to give people extra time to make their nominations.”

Leonard stressed the nomination process is not time consuming and the return on investment – significant national recognition at a sparkling gala in front of the most prominent players in the Canadian ICT industry – is quite attractive.

“We’ve seen entries from five provinces, but we’d really like to see nominations from every province to reflect the truly important role ICT innovation plays in the national digital economy,” says Leonard.

The Ingenious Awards and the CanadianCIO of the Year Award celebrate industry leadership and the transformative power of ever-evolving ICT tools to strengthen the economy, improve productivity and enhance the lives of Canadians.

“ITAC is looking for help us to identify the next round of companies to receive Ingenious Awards. Whether it’s the way your company’s technology is changing business or the unique way a client is using ICT, we’d like you to consider consider making a nomination,” says Leonard. “ With six categories, any size business, organization or not for profit can be a winner.”

Do you work with a CIO who is making a difference and should be celebrated? If you answer yes, consider a nomination for the 2015 Canadian CIO of the Year. This year there are two categories: private and public sector.

New nominations deadline: July 17, 2015

Ingenious Awards Gala Dinner: November 17, Toronto Four Seasons Hotel
