2018 National Awards Program


The Canadian College of Health Leaders, and the sponsors of the National Awards Program, are proud to honour the individuals, teams and organizations that are making a difference across the healthcare system.

The College was delighted to present its awards at the 2018 Honouring Health Leadership event at the St. John's Convention Centre in St. John's, NL, on Sunday June 3, 2018.  The 3M Health Care Quality Team Awards and the Robert Wood Johnson Awards were presented during the National Health Leadership Conference on June 4 & 5, 2018.

For more information about our 2018 recipients download the Celebrating Leading Practices booklet which illustrates leadership at its finest and demonstrates the impact that a person or team can have within their organization and beyond.

Those profiled were selected for special recognition; however, the 2018 competition included many outstanding programs and accomplishments. Look for an expanded version of the Celebrating Leading Practices booklet, including descriptions of all award nominees, to be posted for free download on the College’s website, later this summer.
