CMA Virtual Award Show

to
The Canadian Mortgage Awards has long been the industry event of the year – and even though the current climate means we are not able to hold a physical event, we are just as determined to recognize the achievements of talented mortgage professionals and organizations.
 
That’s why we’ve revamped the CMAs as an all-new virtual experience: an exciting new awards format that will bring the glitz, glamour and celebration directly to you, wherever you are.
 
Featuring the highly-anticipated live announcement of winners, panel discussions with finalists, winner interviews and more, the virtual CMAs allows you to celebrate the industry’s success with the nation’s leading mortgage professionals while you engage, communicate and connect with your peers and the wider mortgage community.
 
So dust off your black tie, stock up on your beverage of choice and get ready for the virtual celebration of the year!
