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.
For more information, email: CBA@archway.ca
The 2023 event will be held on Nov 2nd, 2023 and nominations are currently being accepted.
The nomination form is designed to allow the nominator to provide information about the nominee’s exemplary contribution to the community and to Archway.
The selection committee, comprised of Archway staff and board members, chooses the winners at its discretion, based on the information contained in the nomination, as well as information requested from our programs or the nominees themselves.
We invite you to join us as a sponsor and become an integral part of this annual celebration of community building.

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.
