What Are the IAP2 Core Values Awards?

The annual IAP2 Canada Core Values Awards recognize and encourage organizations and individuals in the practice of public participation and engagement - promoting excellence, quality and innovation in the way they execute their projects and programs and exemplify the IAP2 Core Values

Please note: Due to the technical difficulties we experienced last week with our website, the deadline for Core Values Awards submissions has been extended to June 7, 2023.

How to apply for the awards?

A registration fee of $100 is required for each application. The fee is in place to cover the costs of program administration. However, please let us know if this is a problem because we do not want it to be a deterrent to applying. You can pay online through the IAP2 Canada website. If you require a Word version of an application document, please contact us at info@iap2canada.ca.

Organization of the Year Award

The Organization of the Year Award recognizes the application of the Core Values throughout the organization and how engagement is embedded into decision-making practices. For many organizations, this is a long-term process and all organizations in various stages of the process are encouraged to apply for this Award.

Research Award

Research is critically important to IAP2 and its members if we are to understand and overcome challenges in everyday engagement and build upon public participation theory and practice. The Research Award acknowledges important contributions to the body of public engagement knowledge.

Innovation doesn’t happen by accident. The combination of interesting problems, good questions and a spirit of inquiry are the foundations that help us build new theories and give shape to new ideas; they are the elements that help advance our knowledge and understanding.

Three award winners from these categories will be submitted for international IAP2 awards competition:
