The Canadian Association of Municipal Administrators (CAMA) has announced the eight recipients of the 2021 CAMA Awards of Excellence. These Canadian municipalities were recognized for their efforts on a national level at the awards ceremony earlier this afternoon. We are pleased to help CAMA recognize these hardworking municipalities that have stood out among their peers in municipal administration innovation, professional development, and environment.
Since Canada has municipalities of all shapes and sizes, three awards were granted in the above categories based on population of the municipality:
- Population under 20,000
- Population between 20,001 and 100,000
- Population over 100,000.
Congratulations to this year’s winners and we look forward to seeing what these municipalities do in the future.
