The Diversity Award is presented by Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television to honour excellence in English-language television programming that "reflects the racial and cultural diversity of Canada." It was introduced in 1988 as the Multiculturalism Award under the umbrella of the Gemini Awards, and renamed to the Canada Award in 1996.

Since 2013, the award has been presented as part of the new Canadian Screen Awards program. It was renamed to its current name in 2014.

National Film Board of Canada productions and co-productions have won approximately half of all Canada Awards.
