Find out which members of the Canadian mortgage industry came away with the top prizes
The Canadian Mortgage Awards made a triumphant return as an in-person event at a sold-out Liberty Grand in Toronto last night.
Mortgage professionals came from across Canada to reconnect with colleagues and peers – and raise a glass to the industry’s finest – at the packed venue.
After being held virtually for the past two years due to the pandemic, this year’s CMAs marked the perfect occasion for the industry to come together and celebrate the success of its best performers over the last 12 months.
Canadian Mortgage Professional would like to thank all those who made the event such a roaring success: everyone who attended, event partner Coalition of Independent Mortgage Brokers of Canada (CIMBC) and other special sponsors, and – of course – our illustrious winners.
