CAB Diversity Awards


In recent years, the CAB has created four high profile Gold Ribbon award categories celebrating Aboriginal Programming and Diversity in News and Information Programming.

In 2005, the CAB created the Gold Ribbon Award for Excellence in Aboriginal Programming for Television and Specialty and Pay members, which was launched at its Convention in Winnipeg. Gold Ribbon Awards in this category have been presented since then, with the 2008 Gold Ribbon awarded to the CHBC-TV, Kelowna, Canwest for its entry, Magic on the Water.
