Find out who came away with the top prizes at the star-studded event
After a memorable night in Toronto, the Canadian Mortgage Awards are in the books for another year, with the winners in each prestigious category revealed in front of a 650-strong audience.
Mortgage professionals from across the country converged on the downtown Westin Harbour Castle for the star-studded awards show, now in its 17th year, which saw some of the country’s leading names vie for top prizes.
With Excellence Awardees – the finalists across each of the 27 categories – having been named in February, overall winners were announced throughout the course of tonight’s glitzy ceremony.
Read on to find out who took the top honours in each category, with awards for brokers, brokerages, lenders, and overall industry achievements.
