Heritage Awards


To recognize individuals, teams and organizations who make a noteworthy contribution to the preservation, education and celebration of Canada’s Military C&E Heritage.

As part of the Communications and Electronics Association’s Awards and Recognition Program, the Heritage Awards supplement other forms of recognition in our community such as Branch commendations and the Foundation’s Philanthropic Award. In this instance, these awards are intended for presentation to persons and organizations who promote our heritage and honour our legacy through their actions.  More detail on the Heritage Awards themselves, the Nomination and Submission Guide and the Nomination Form are at the bottom of this page.
