Community Builders Awards

About Community Builders

The annual Archway Community Builders Awards are designed to acknowledge those who have made an outstanding contribution to Archway Community Services and the community.

New for 2023: Traditionally, Community Builders Awards have recognized those who have demonstrated a long-term commitment to serving the Fraser Valley community. Our new Emerging Community Builder category recognizes those who may be younger, new to the Fraser Valley or have recently started giving back.

Past Recipients of Community Builders’ Awards

The Community Builders’ Awards was created in 2006 by our Board of Directors to honor and acknowledge individuals who have made a significant contribution to not only Archway Community Services but to the community at large. Since then the program has grown to include individuals, organizations and for profit companies.
