Call for Nominations – 2021 Quality & Innovation Awards

We are seeking nominations for the 15th annual Quality and Innovation Awards.

The Quality and Innovation Awards recognize significant contributions to quality and innovation in the delivery of cancer care in Ontario.

A new award category – COVID-19 Innovation Award – has been created as an additional award to recognize innovative initiatives developed or adapted in response to the pandemic to improve the performance of cancer care in the province.

You must let the nominees know that you are submitting the nomination on their behalf. By allowing themselves to be nominated, the nominees acknowledge and agree that – if they are selected for the award – their names and initiative will appear on the Cancer Quality Council of Ontario website and announced in a media release. We will also feature winners on social media platforms.

To learn about the selection criteria, including our framework for defining and measuring quality, go to Quality and Innovation Awards.

Nomination Process

Step 1: Submit an expression of interest.

Send a short email to Quality and Innovation Awards with the name of the initiative, team member(s) and the region.

The deadline for the expression of interest is July 5, 2021. You may nominate someone even if you have not submitted an expression of interest.

Step 2: Review the criteria checklists and select an award category.

An initiative can only be eligible in one award category: Quality, Innovation or COVID-19. Review these criteria checklists carefully to select the appropriate category for your submission:
