The awards are split into two sections. The awards-by-research categories are decided by a survey of portfolio managers, buy-side analysts and sell-side analysts who cover Canadian companies. They select the winners for best overall IR, best IRO, best IR by a senior management team and best IR in sector.
The awards-by-nomination categories cover a range of IR practice areas, such as annual reports, ESG reporting, investor meetings, technology and crisis management. Companies are able to submit entries for the different awards, with the winners chosen by a panel of expert judges.
This year, the panel of judges features:
- James Beech, editor-in-chief, IR Magazine
- Brian Christie, former vice president of IR, Agnico Eagle Mines
- Lorne Gorber, senior adviser and Quebec lead, LodeRock
- Colleen Johnston, former CFO, TD Bank
