Established in 2012, the CAC Award of Distinction program recognizes excellence in Canada’s coal industry. Through the award, the CAC shines a spotlight on deserving individuals who have demonstrated exceptional accomplishments in the coal industry in Canada.
To be eligible for the Award of Distinction, the recipient should make a positive contribution to Canada’s coal industry either past or present. The coal industry includes the full coal transportation chain (terminal, port, railway), industrial coal consumers (power utilities and cement manufacturing), and a myriad of suppliers of goods and services that support the industry.
Consider someone who has demonstrated leadership, innovation, commitment to safety, productivity, or excellence in human resources or management.
