Each year, CIRI recognizes investor relations professionals who make a significant contribution to the practice of investor relations. These individuals are nominated by you - their peers.  During this season of strategy and budget planning, we ask you to think about your IR program and consider nominating those IROs whose programs or initiatives you admire.

CIRI Fellowship Program
The CIRI Fellowship Program was launched in 2015 to recognize leaders in the investor relations profession who, by their achievements, bring distinction to the profession and serve as role models for others. CIRI Fellows have made significant contributions to the advancement of the investor relations profession and to CIRI throughout their careers. Earning the designation of F.CIRI, the CIRI Fellow is the highest honour for investor relations professionals in Canada.
