Nominations Open: Waterstone MacKay Canada’s Most Admired™ CEO Social Purpose Innovator Award

As a Beneficial Corporation (B. Corp) since 2018, at MacKay CEO Forums we take a stand on “business as a force for good.” That’s why we’re excited to announce the launch of the Canada’s Most Admired™ CEO Social Purpose Innovator Award in partnership with Waterstone Human Capital.

A Social Purpose Business is a for-profit company whose enduring reason for being is to create a better world. It is an engine for good, creating social benefits by the very act of conducting business. Its growth is a positive force in society.

The Canada’s Most Admired™ CEO Social Purpose Innovator Award is awarded to one MacKay CEO Forums member to recognize a CEO of a Canadian company who has achieved significant accomplishments in their career—specifically focused on using the power of corporate culture to drive social impact and organizational performance.


  • Nominee must be the CEO of a Canadian or Canadian-based for-profit organization with over 25 employees and revenue of $5 million-$5 Billion+
  • Nominee must be a member of a MacKay CEO Forums CEO peer group
  • Nominee does NOT require Beneficial Corporation Certification or Social Enterprise Certification

Please reach out to your Forum Chair by Friday June 9 with the name, company name, and contact information for any of your CEO forum members who you’d like to put forward for consideration for this inaugural award year.

Thank you for helping us recognize the inspiring leaders in our community.
