Nominations are now being accepted for the Community Builders’ Awards organized by Archway Community Services. The awards honor outstanding individuals and organizations who work tirelessly, passionately and collaboratively to make our community a better place in which to live, work and play.
The judging panel is especially interested in nominations highlighting the ways that individuals and organizations responded to the COVID-19 crisis.
The 2020 awards were not held due to the COVID-19 restrictions. With the expected easing of restrictions, organizers are making plans for an event on October 28th, 2021.
“After a hard year for everyone, we look forward to being able to gather together, whether it’s in-person or virtually, and recognize the everyday heroes among us,” said Pamela Chatry, Chair of the awards committee and Archway board member.
The Community Builders’ Awards were established in 2006 by the Archway Board of Directors to honour and acknowledge individuals and has since grown to recognize organizations.
In 2019, Harold Janzen, Pieter, and Fran Vanderpol, Vancity Credit Union, and the Abbotsford News were recognized for their contributions to Archway and the larger community. Notable past recipients include Dr. Andy Sidhu, Home Depot, Dr. Elizabeth Watts, and the late Dave Holmberg.
The deadline for nominations is August 15th, 2021. To submit a nomination and see a complete list of past winners please visit Archway.ca/CBA
