Jackie Porter, founder of Team Jackie Porter in Toronto, was also one of the winners in 2021. “I was very shocked to be named again, but there was a very long list of very impressive women, most of whom I know,” she told Wealth Professional after winning the Mackenzie Investments Award for Female Trailblazer of the Year in 2019 and Harvest Portfolios Award for Female Trailblazer of the Year in 2021.
“I’m in a really grateful place right now. There are really great people in this industry doing amazing things and nights like this give us an opportunity to find out who they are and celebrate them.”
There are 23 awards – 12 individual and 11 organizational – which you can check here. Nominations for them are open now until February 18.
You can make a nomination here. There is no fee.
Once you’ve made a nomination, and submitted a brief description about why, the Wealth Professional Awards team will conduct some research to ensure no one deserving recognition is missed. The excellence awardees are then notified and asked for a submission, and their names announced in April 2022. A panel of judges then review their submissions with a simple point system to determine the winners, and the winners are announced at the awards show. This year, after being held virtually for two years, it will be at the Liberty Grand in Toronto on June 1.
