The Hall of Fame award celebrates individuals who have demonstrated leadership in the development of their company or companies and success in their chosen industry. These individuals are visionary leaders and exhibit these qualities through the design or implementation of revolutionary products, systems or processes. They are strongly integrated into the community and demonstrate a positive impact with youth and students.


The Pioneer award looks back at those people who began a manufacturing business in Manitoba and nurtured it into a successful company. This award recognizes key builders of our manufacturing community who launched successful companies that significantly increased employment in the sector.


The Hall of Fame Award for Safety Leadership celebrates individuals who have demonstrated leadership in safety and health in the manufacturing industry. In addition, these individuals have a history of advancing safety and health practices within their organization and industry. The winner of this award has made a lasting impact on the safety and health of others in the industry.


The Export award is granted each year to a company demonstrating excellence in expanding into geographic markets and through significant and sustained export sales. This company has achieved a certain degree revenue growth either through regular operations or the creation of additional product lines or the innovation of existing designs. They exhibit good corporate citizenship and have contributed to the expansion of Manitoban and Canadian employment.


The Emerging award is designed to capture businesses that have started new companies with significant future potential. It will recognize relatively new companies who are distinguishing themselves through growth, impact and innovation. These organizations are likely to become future leaders in Manitoba manufacturing and exporting.

2022 Women in Manufacturing Scholarship Recipients

CME Manitoba is proud to be presenting three $2,000 Women in Manufacturing scholarships as a part of our awards program. Recipient information coming soon!



Women in Manufacturing (WIM) is a pan-Canadian initiative of CME that aims to increase the number of females employed in the manufacturing industry. CME has created a scholarship program to support the education of women entering the manufacturing workforce.


Your participation in our annual Made in Manitoba Golf Tournament held in partnership with Food & Beverage Manitoba each year builds and sustains the fund required to present these scholarships. Connect with us to find out more about CME’s national and provincial WIM initiatives.
