VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/17/13 -- Cantech Letter today announced the finalists in two categories for the 2013 Cantech Letter Awards.
The Fourth Annual Cantech Letter Awards will be presented at a gala dinner sponsored by Difference Capital and the TSX that will follow the Cantech Investment Conference on January 16th at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Canadian icon Commander Chris Hadfield will keynote the first annual conference.
Winners will join Cantech Letter in ringing the opening bell at the Toronto Stock Exchange the following morning, January 17th.

A panel of Canada's top technology analysts were asked to name their top three picks in each of four categories. Judges will then be asked to rank the consensus picks. Special panels were assembled for the Canadian Cleantech Stock of the Year and the Canadian Life Sciences Stock of the Year. Each judge's picks counted for one vote, and in each of the four technology awards, the readers of Cantech Letter will be given one vote in online voting that will close December 31st.
