Annual Achievement Award

The Canadian Heart Failure Society (CHFS) Annual Achievement Award was created in 2016 to recognize a member who has made significant contributions to the academic, research, or clinical scopes of heart failure.

Eligibility Criteria

Although the recipient is usually expected to be a member of the CHFS, if nominated, exceptions can be considered at the discretion of the Nominations and Awards Committee.

Selection Criteria

Nominations must include (and will be judged by) the following: 

  1. Two letters of recommendation from members in good standing to support each nomination; and 
  2. The nominee must be shown to have made significant contributions to the academic, research, or clinical scopes of heart failure. Particular consideration will be given to contributions towards advancement of heart failure issues in Canada.

Award Prize

The award will be presented at the Canadian Cardiovascular Congress (CCC) at the CCS Award Ceremony. The winner will receive an honorary crystal award.  

A call for nominations will go out to all CHFS members with a closing date of May 1.
