The Canadian Online Publishing Awards looked a little different this year as it went virtual, but it still featured webinars, networking opportunities, and several gold certificates with IT World Canada’s name on it.
ITWC walked home with four gold awards at this year’s COPAs, and even nabbed a silver for good measure.
