CTV has partnered with The Globe and Mail and Cyberpresse to celebrate Canadians who have sought to make a difference, not just by doing what they do, but through the demonstrable impact they've made on the world around them, whether in Canada or beyond. Through their vision, leadership and actions, each of these people has immeasurably improved the lives of others.

The Transformational Canadians program chose exceptional individuals drawn from across six fields: business, technology, the environment, education, health care and the community. All winners combined a passion for positive change with the discipline and focus to achieve outstanding results.
