ITWC celebrates success at 2018 Canadian Online Publishing Awards

IT World Canada continued its decade of success at the Canadian Online Publishing Awards (COPA), with six finalist entries across five categories for 2018.

From awarding our editorial team for their reporting, to design and development team for website design and special projects, to our multimedia production team for videos and interactive features, COPA has recognized this independent publisher in many different ways and forms.
