IABC Canada recognizes the talented, professional communicators working across the country to influence best practices
in the field of communications and public relations.


IABC Canada offers the Silver Leaf Awards and the IABC Canada Master Communicator Award annually. Silver Leaf submissions are in and evaluators are working hard to score the entries. We expect this process to be completed by December 12, 2016.

Silver Leaf is Canada’s premiere professional awards program celebrating excellence in business communication. It’s a chance for communicators working in all disciplines to receive national industry recognition for outstanding work in the field of communications.

The Award recognizes outstanding Canadian communicators whose work has brought credit to IABC, the profession, their organization or clients, and whose contributions have raised the standards of organizational communication in Canada.
