2020 Finalists Press Release




2020 CHBA NATIONAL AWARDS FOR HOUSING EXCELLENCE FINALISTS NAMED


OTTAWA, ON – February 6, 2020 – The Canadian Home Builders’ Association (CHBA) is pleased to announce the finalists for the 2020 CHBA National Awards for Housing Excellence.

The competition recognizes the best in Canadian new homes, home renovations, community development and marketing. Over 700 entries were received from coast to coast, from small towns and large urban areas. Nearly 200 judges reviewed images, floor plans, and project description before narrowing down the field.

“When you look at these finalists, it’s amazing to see the variety of architectural styles being incorporated into residential housing in Canada today. Whether a home is built by a developer in a thriving new community or is a custom renovation done by a small family-run business, these projects showcase the pride we have in our industry,” said CHBA CEO Kevin Lee.  

Categories represent the full spectrum of Canadian homes: low-rise houses, high-rise apartments, and homes built for ownership or rental purposes.

This year, a new category was added: the Entry-Level Home Affordability Award.

“Builders are always innovating to provide Canadians with housing options, and that includes getting increasingly creative to improve housing affordability for those who are trying to get into the market. We felt it was time to dedicate a category to those efforts, which can range from reducing the footprint of the home, to changing finishes, to incorporating a secondary suite for inter-generational families or rental income, to cost-effective energy efficiency features that don’t add to much cost to the purchase price but reduce operating costs – all while still producing homes that people are proud of and want to live in,” said Lee.

Forty-two awards for excellence in housing will be presented during CHBA’s Homebuilding Week in Canada on April 3rd in Banff, Alberta. Categories include:

  • New Home Awards (15 in total)
  • Net Zero Home Award (1 award)
  • Modular Innovation Award (1 award)
  • Home Renovation Awards (11 in total)
  • Community Development Awards (1 award)
  • Marketing Awards (10 in total)

Three major awards will also be presented. The Design Excellence Award, Renovation Excellence, and Marketing Excellence Award will each be presented to the home builder or renovator who has achieved the highest level of success in the respective new home, renovation, and marketing categories.

A complete listing by category of all the CHBA National Awards for Housing Excellence finalists can be found below.
