As the voice of the Canadian jewellery industry, the Canadian Jewellers Association is proud to be in a position that allows us to recognize our members who make a positive contribution. As advocates of growth, innovation and promotion of best practices across the many facets of the Canadian jewellery industry, we are more than pleased to award those who assist us in achieving our mandate.

Currently, we present two awards annually; the Erol Paylan Memorial Award and the CJA Chairman’s Award (formerly known as the President’s Award). In the future, we hope to acknowledge top college graduates as well. We firmly believe encouragement and appreciation are vital to driving the success of our industry forward.
