Since 1982, The Ernest C. Manning Awards Foundation has been creating a culture of innovation in Canada by discovering, celebrating and rewarding Canadian innovators of all ages. We tell the stories of Canadian innovators who are improving the lives of Canadians and others around the world through their commercialized innovations.

Nominees may be eligible for one of four Awards, from the $100 000 Principal Award to the $10 000 Innovation Award. Young Canadians participating in the Canada-Wide Science Fair may be eligible for one of eight Young Canadian Awards and one of four Young Canadian Innovator Awards.
