Awards

Each year the CMA Awards celebrate and encourage excellence within the Canadian museum sector.

Museums of all sizes and budgets are encouraged to submit nominations. There is a set of specific criteria established for each award, designed to place less emphasis on matters of expenditure. A volunteer jury conducts a peer review of all submissions and the successful recipients are honoured at the CMA's national conference.

The CMA also supports awards in partnership with other organizations, including ICOM Canada, the Canadian Federation of Friends of Museums and more.

The Canadian Museums Association is seeking jury members for various awards presented throughout the year. If you would like to be considered for a place on a jury committee please send your resume to awards@museums.ca.
