Awards Committee

The CNSA Awards recognize significant projects and people within our membership and community. The four CNSA Awards are:

  • Anna Hamilton Award for outstanding voluntary service to the Nova Scotian archival community
  • Doug Kirby Award for outstanding achievement in archival preservation
  • Dr. Phyllis R. Blakeley Award for outstanding accomplishment in archival work
  • Dalhousie SIM Student Award: beginning in 2019, the CNSA has offered an award annually to a graduating student in the Dalhousie School of Information Management who shows the most interest in the archival profession. The winner receives a CNSA student membership for one year, a certificate, plus $100.

For details about past award winners, visit the Awards page under Member Services.


The Awards Committee organizes the call for nominations and judges the nominations submitted.

The Committee changes each year and is selected by the Chair / Executive Member-at-Large (Communications and Awards).

Committee members will act as judges for the Awards and will be announced each year prior to the Award deadline.
