First round of CMA finalists announced

First round of CMA finalists announced The annual Canadian Mortgage Awards brought to you by Manulife Bank are set for May 13 at the Liberty Grand in Toronto and we’ve got your first set of finalists.

This year marks the tenth annual CMAs – an event that will also be celebrated in a special commemorative issue of Canadian Mortgage Professional magazine.

With all the changes the industry has gone through in the past few years – not the least of which, increasingly difficult mortgage rules – and the challenges facing various markets today, it’s more important than ever to recognize the industry’s best and brightest.

Manulife Bank congratulates every organization and mortgage professional who earned a nomination from their peers for a Canadian Mortgage Award this year.

Jeff Spencer, VP Retail Sales, Manulife Bank, expressed no surprise that a record number of nominations was received in a year marked by economic and regulatory challenges. “Success comes from consistently evaluating and executing positive changes and ideas,” Spencer observed. “Mortgage professionals are highly adaptable and they rose to the challenges, demonstrating a continued commitment to serving home buyers across the country.”
Manulife Bank has always believed in the value of advice, particularly when it comes to major financial decisions such as buying a home. This event is a unique opportunity to salute the mortgage industry’s excellence, and to affirm the value Manulife Bank places on working with its influential leaders and thinkers.

We have received a record number of nominations and over the course of the week we will be announcing all the finalists for each of the 21 categories.

Without further ado, these are the finalists for the first round of categories.
