The CMAOntario Awards Show will also include the Impact Award, which recognizes an artist, group, industry personality or organization that has left an enduring and indelibly positive footprint on the landscape of country music in Ontario. 

The 2023 Impact Award will be presented to Family Brown. Led by patriarch Papa Joe Brown, his two daughters Lawanda and Tracey, and son Barry, and musicians Ron Sparling and Dave Dennison, and in later years, Gary Spike Spicer, and Randall Prescott, Family Brown became the most awarded act in Canadian Country music.

The Ottawa-based band had a 22-year career bridging several generations of country music and played hundreds of communities across Ontario.
