The Kidney Foundation of Canada

The 2017 Kidney Foundation of Canada Circle of Excellence Award


This new award, created in 2017, recognizes an individual staff member’s (or members’) outstanding accomplishment(s) in a given calendar year. It is presented to a staff member (or group of staff) who has gone “above and beyond” the scope of their current position by, for example, involvement in a special project, realization of a significant achievement, or a significant accomplishment which has had an impact on the Foundation on a national basis. This award is open to staff at all levels of the organization across the country with at least 2 years of service. More than one award may be presented in a given year.
