About the CCPPP National Awards
The Canadian Council National Awards for Public-Private Partnerships were established in 1998 to honour governments and/or public institutions and their private sector partners who have demonstrated excellence and innovation in public-private partnerships.
The awards are presented annually to showcase Canadian excellence and innovation in project financing, service delivery, infrastructure investment and/or generation of economic benefit, which result in enhanced quality of public services and facilities.
Applications for the 2022 Awards are now open. The deadline to apply is noon (EDT), Thursday, September 15, 2022.
A P3 Champion Award is also given out occasionally to an individual who has made noteworthy contributions to the development of public-private partnerships in Canada. Applications for the 2022 Champion Award are also now open. The deadline to apply is noon (EDT), Thursday, September 15, 2022.
This year, we will celebrate the winners in person at our annual conference, P3 2022, in downtown Toronto on Monday, November 21, 2022.

Three awards are presented annually to public institutions/governments and their private sector partners for outstanding achievement in Canadian public-private partnerships (PPP). Awards may be announced in each of the following key areas:
- Project Development
- Project Financing
- Service Delivery
Winners receive an engraved glass sculpture and have the right to the designation of National Award winner on publications, stationery and future proposal submissions. Winning partnerships may be published as case studies, and will also be advertised through news releases and media pitching.
Preconditions to be considered for a CCPPP National Award
A project considered for an award by CCPPP must meet three basic requirements:
The project must be one that is typically overseen by the public sector and one that the public sector would have done traditionally, had it not used a PPP solution. Projects that do not fit into a government's normal activities are not considered public-private partnerships; and
The project must demonstrate the transfer of risk; and
- The project must demonstrate innovation and/or excellence in its sector.
All projects must meet these three criteria to be eligible for a CCPPP National Award for Innovation and Excellence. (Please review any of the previously published Awards Case Studies publications for examples of past Award winning projects. See our bookstore for a complete list)
