Georgie Awards®

In 1992 a group of industry professionals sought out to establish a housing awards program to provide value to the residential construction industry and communities throughout BC. Up until 2001 the awards were open to all builders, renovators, and developers. Thereafter, with the purpose of managing the integrity of the program it became a CHBA BC members-only recognition program which is what we are familiar with today. This year, the association received an 11 percent increase in submissions with finalists and winners chosen by a jury of out-of-province industry experts.
