The 2016 SCC Awards and World Standards Day Ceremony reflected the theme of "standards build trust" by showcasing how standards accelerate the acceptance or proliferation of innovative products, processes and services in the marketplace.
The day was also dedicated to raising awareness about the role of SCC and standardization in building a more competitive and innovative economy, and highlighting the achievements of Canadians who dedicate their time and expertise to Canada's standardization network.
