  • Showcase the significance of rural healthcare in Canada 
  • Offer a platform to demonstrate the impact of members’ work in rural communities 

We strongly encourage you to submit nominations for outstanding colleagues, mentors, and peers. Our esteemed awards committee will meticulously review each nomination to select the most deserving winners. We value your input and eagerly await your nominations.

Please have your nomination letter(s) ready to submit.
Please combine multiple letters into one file.
Format: Microsoft Word (max 250 words)
Optional nominee’s CV for leadership awards (max. three pages)

Our prestigious rural awards are given to SRPC Members, with a few exceptions: The Keith Award, The Rural Education Award, and The Rural Health Champion Award, which may be presented to Non-Members. 

To verify your membership status or the membership status of your nominee, and for any questions or eligibility reviews, please contact Jenna Keindel at

The winners will be notified in March and invited to attend an Awards Ceremony and Dinner, which will be held in conjunction with our Rural and Remote Medicine Conference.
