TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 17, 2012) - Forget the Oscars. Forget the Golden Globes. This awards season, there's a new contest Canadians will want to be paying close attention to: The 1st Annual RateSupermarket.ca 'Best Of Finance' Awards.

For the first time, RateSupermarket.ca, Canada's independent rate comparison site for mortgage rates and finance products, is introducing a consumers' choice component to their best product picks.

Canadians are invited to participate in the survey until 11:59 PM EST on Jan. 2, 2013. The Best of Finance Awards, including the Consumers' Choice picks, will be announced January 7, 2013.
