Connecting the Canadian 
Live Performance Community

List of CITT/ICTS Awards

CITT/ICTS is proud to recognize individuals and companies that excel in their field of live performance in Canada. The CITT/ICTS Awards are designed to honour individuals and companies from a wide spectrum of the Canadian live performance industry.

The nomination of candidates for CITT/ICTS Awards is driven directly by the membership. This is your chance to recognize a company, the work of a mentor, a colleague or someone whose work you admire. The final selection is made by the Awards Committee made up of the Section Representatives, the Vice-President and either the Past President or President-Elect.

The awards are handed out at the award banquet held during the CITT/ICTS annual conference.
