What is MAX Awards?

The objective of MAX Awards is to recognize Muslims who have demonstrated significant achievement, leadership, and commitment to serving their industry, communities and Canada at large.

MAX Awards offer a rare glimpse into the skills, talents and cultural strengths of a dynamic community of Canadian Muslims, whose continued efforts help build a strong workforce, energize the economy, and expand our combined cultural horizons.

Judging Process
Following public nominations, finalists for each category will be chosen by our esteemed panel of judges who have spent a great deal of time and commitment to scoring these worthy individuals. Independent judges are selected based on their work experience, level of education, and contributions to the Canadian community. Their evaluation will carry a weight of 50% while the remaining 50% weight will be assigned to public voting. Judge scores and public voting scores are consolidated to select a winner. This style of engagement ensures the Awards are presented purely on merit. Your vote will help us recognize inspirational Muslim leaders who have demonstrated significant achievement, leadership, and commitment to serving their community.
