SRPC'S Annual Rural Awards

The Society of Rural Physicians of Canada has created awards to recognize and celebrate the exceptional accomplishments of its dedicated and enthusiastic members. Every year, we honour individuals and organizations that have made remarkable contributions to support, maintain and advocate for rural healthcare in Canada. 

Our objectives are to: 

  • Acknowledge our members for their rural community projects 
  • Provide opportunities to pay tribute to those members who serve rural communities 
  • Showcase the significance of rural healthcare in Canada 
  • Offer a platform to demonstrate the impact of members’ work in rural communities
We strongly encourage you to submit nominations for outstanding colleagues, mentors, and peers. Our esteemed awards committee will meticulously review each nomination to select the most deserving winners. We value your input and eagerly await your nominations.

Our prestigious rural awards are given to SRPC Members, with a few exceptions: The Keith Award, The Rural Education Award, and The Rural Health Champion Award, which may be presented to Non-Members. 

To verify your membership status or the membership status of your nominee, and for any questions or eligibility reviews, please contact Jenna Keindel at
