TORONTO, Aug. 17, 2016 /CNW/ - CFA Society Toronto has created a set of journalist awards recognizing the contributions of different Canadian based publications and journalists towards advancement of investor education, best practice and the promotion of ethics and high professional standards within the financial community.
