The Canadian Communication Systems Alliance is pleased to announce the winners of Tuned-In Canada 2021, a long-standing annual CCSA initiative that celebrates the contributions CCSA-Member independent communications companies make to their communities and for their customers.
“The CCSA has been running the awards since 2014 and we’re pleased to announce that it continues to be widely embraced, receiving more than 16,000 votes across Canada this year,” said Jay Thomson, CEO of the CCSA. “We love celebrating our Members through this initiative and are continuously moved by the valuable work they do and the exceptional service they provide to their communities. As always, their stories are nothing short of inspirational.”
Winners in each category were determined in two ways: 1) by the most votes/highest score received, and 2) by the most votes/highest score received per capita subscribers. Since CCSA is made up of various-sized Members, this system levels the playing field for all.
Votes for the three public voting contest categories were cast online while the two juried categories were determined by the judges, who evaluated the nominations using specific criteria and provided a mark out of 100.
Novus Entertainment (BC) – Jordan Wade
Cooptel (QC) – Pierre Tétrault
CRRS (NL) – 40 years of making a difference
Vianet (ON) – Rural Broadband Sheep
New North Networks (NT) – DOCSIS 3.1 Remote PHY technology
Riondel Cable Society (BC) – Broadband upgrade
Westman Communications Group (MB) – My story
Cooptel (QC) – Crochet de gauche, Crochet de droite
The winners in each category will receive $1,000 to donate to a local charity of their choice. If the winner won by both calculation methods, they will receive $2,000. Winners will also be celebrated at CCSA’s annual conference in September 2021.
