We understand the Internet is more than technology – it is a significant force, a catalyst, and a powerful agent of social change. That’s why the .CA Impact Awards celebrates the impact of .CA websites and applications. We are looking for people and organizations that use their .CA sites to truly make a difference in the lives of their users and those around them. Impact can include providing a product or service that many want, connecting people and making new alliances possible, raising funds that then go to help others, the list goes on. Impact can be social, technological or economic.

Below is a description of what we’re looking for in each award category. Before submitting your entry, be sure to check it against the following criteria.
