The CAS Honour Awards program celebrates the diverse representation of anesthesiologists across Canada and their achievements. We are proud to recognize outstanding contributions to the field of anesthesia by awarding the following distinctions.
The Gold Medal is the highest award of the Canadian Anesthesiologists’ Society. It is an inscribed medal given in recognition of excellence in a career in service to anesthesiology.
The Gold Medal may be awarded to an individual, ordinarily a Canadian, active or retired, who has made a significant contribution to anesthesia in Canada through teaching, research, professional practice, or administration and leadership.

This award is given to an Active member of the CAS who has made a significant contribution to the teaching of anesthesia in Canada.
JOHN BRADLEY YOUNG EDUCATOR AWARD
Given in recognition of excellence and effectiveness in education in anesthesia.
This award is given to an Active member of the CAS in the first ten years of practice who has made significant contributions to the education of students and residents in anesthesia in Canada.
CLINICAL PRACTITIONER AWARD

This award is given to a member of the CAS who has made a significant contribution to the practice of clinical anesthesia in Canada.
EMERITUS MEMBERSHIP AWARD
Recognizing individuals retired from clinical practice who, during their careers, made a significant contribution to anesthesia.
This award is given to a current member of the CAS in any category who has been a member of the Society for 25 years or more and has retired from clinical practice.
RESEARCH RECOGNITION AWARD
This award is administered at the same time as CAS Honour Awards but is judged by the Research Advisory Committee. It is presented by the Canadian Anesthesiologists’ Society to honour a senior investigator who has made major contributions to anesthesia research in Canada.
Enhance the profession and spread inspiration by nominating an outstanding colleague for one of these prestigious awards—to join an exclusive group of previously recognized CAS members.
