EQ AWARDS NOMINATIONS

SUBMISSIONS CLOSED. Thanks for submitting!

This year, our celebrations were put on hold as we came to grips with COVID-19. As Canada begins to rebuild and recover, EnerQuality has re-imagined our EQ Awards as a Virtual Event.

We faced extraordinary circumstances during the last few weeks of our Award submissions. As a result, we have re-opened our Award Nominations for three weeks, starting Monday, June 29 and closing, July 19 at 11:59 pm.
