What it takes…

Entering The Canadian Software Testing & QE Awards is an opportunity for the market as a whole to be acknowledged and praised. With such recognition comes self belief, enhanced awareness, the breeding of success, the attraction of fresh and bright talent, as well as bringing high levels of exposure and acclaim for individuals, teams, and organisations.

The Canadian Software Testing & QE Awards offers networking, interaction and chance to learn from North America’s software testing elite.

The Canadian Software Testing & QE Awards is open to all individuals and businesses aligned with software testing and quality assurance, irrespective of a business or project size.

However, all entries must have an affiliation to North America – for example if you are an Indian-based business, provided your project was on behalf of a North American business or was conducted in North America, then your entry will be accepted.
