CPCA Industry Awards
Recognizing Excellence & Honouring Innovation
CPCA has a rich history of recognizing excellence. For the past three decades, the paint and coatings industry has been honouring key people who have made significant contributions to the Canadian paint and coatings industry. The awards are presented each year at CPCA's Annual Conference. CPCA has made it a priority to acknowledge those who have spent a significant part of their work lives to improve the industry in different ways. You can see the list of recipients of those awards below. Please nominate those you believe should be considered for these annual awards by completing the nomination form provided here.
