Professional Excellence Recognized by the International Association of Business Communicators Canada

Communications professionals have helped navigate – through the power of communication – the global pandemic. As an integral part of the organization, communications professionals rose to the challenge and shone over the past 19 months. This came through in the calibre of Silver Leaf Award entries received this year from organizations of all sizes and types across Canada.

We’re proud to announce the 2021 Silver Leaf Award winners, recognizing outstanding professional communications. Of the 157 entries submitted, 57 are being honoured with a Silver Leaf Award this year – 26 with an Award of Excellence and 31 an Award of Merit. Winners span over twenty categories, including brand communications, internal communications, government relations, special events, and two new categories: diversity and inclusion, and COVID-19 response & recovery management and communication.

“Year after year, Silver Leaf winners continue to impress us with their creativity, rigorous work and achievements,” says Angela Wilson, National Programs Director, IABC Canada West Region. “I’d like to offer a well-earned congratulations to all the winners.”

“Silver Leaf winners represent the evolution of Canada’s business communications industry as our strategic roles and impact have grown at an incredible pace,” says Dave Sumner, National Programs Director, IABC Canada East Region. “The comments from our evaluators confirm that communications professionals across the country have stepped up their game to deliver outstanding responses to a number of significant business challenges.”
