The CIMarE presents several awards, spread across a broad spectrum of the marine engineering community.
The CIMarE Medal of Excellence
The Canadian Institute of Marine Engineering’s Medal of Excellence recognizes an individual’s outstanding contribution to marine engineering in Canada, including technical innovation, sea-going service, substantial leadership in the industry or the teaching of marine engineering. The Medal is the hallmark of achievement in Canada’s marine engineering profession.
Award of the Medal will be made annually to a Canadian citizen or permanent resident by the National Council on the basis of nominations from Institute members and others in Canada’s marine engineering sector. Written nominations will be kept confidential and the Council will not disclose its inquiries or deliberations into making the award. The Medal of Excellence will ordinarily be presented at the annual Mari-Tech conference and exhibition.
The award of the Medal of Excellence is not restricted to members of the Institute. All persons who may have made a meritorious, substantial and lasting contribution to marine engineering in Canada, through the operation of vessels at sea, the management and work of marine transportation enterprises and shipyards, the design of vessels, the promotion of safety of life at sea, government regulation, or the pursuit of excellence in the marine engineering field are eligible for the award. The Medal is distinct from recognition within the Institute, including Honorary Life Membership and the recently created appointment of Fellow of the Institute.
Please note that serving members of National Council or any Branch Executive are not eligible. There is no bar to nominating previous winners or nominees.
Nominations for 2021 will open in October.
