Air Canada is announcing the launch of an awards program to celebrate the best in travel products and innovations, as conceived by Canadians. The program aims to recognize Canadian skill and creativity, and showcase how design can help us move through and engage with the world.

What we're looking for

The competition is open to all Canadian brands and designers, working here or abroad. (Canadians working at foreign firms are encouraged to submit products for consideration, as long as they are credited as the design lead.) Luggage, gear, gadgets, clothing, accessories and toiletries all eligible for entry. Submissions do not have to be specifically engineered for travel; they must simply enable a fabulous and fun travel experience.

How it will work

We’re assembling a panel of industry experts, influencers and frequent flyers to help us road test the submissions as we travel this summer. The winners will be announced in Toronto at the Expo on Design, Innovation and Technology (28 September to 8 October) and featured in the October issue of enRoute magazine.

Here’s where you come in

Brands and designers will be required to submit three (3) to five (5) samples of their entry for an initial review by the enRoute team, and long-listed items will be dispatched to our panel for a rigorous road test. We will collect their feedback to determine the winners. Please contact for more information on how to enter.
