Winners Announced for 2019 CHBA National Awards for Housing Excellence

NIAGARA FALLS, ONTARIO – MAY 10, 2019 – The Canadian Home Builders’ Association (CHBA) is pleased to announce the winners for its 2019 National Awards for Housing Excellence, powered by Avid Ratings Canada and representing the best new homes, new communities, home renovations, and residential marketing in Canada. Forty National Awards for Housing Excellence were presented at the Association’s 76th National Conference in Niagara Falls. The winners were selected by a panel of judges from over 700 entries from across the country.

Ontario-based companies had a particularly strong showing this year, bringing home 21 new home, renovation, and marketing awards. Companies from Alberta and British Columbia split the remaining 19 awards, with 10 and 9 respectively. Alberta firms also landed the night’s two most prestigious awards for Marketing Excellence and Design Excellence.

Averton, an Edmonton-based home builder, took home the 2019 Design Excellence Award for their cumulative results in the new home categories. Averton was also the winner in the Attached Home, Low-Rise, 1,500 square feet and over category.

Vicky's Homes Inc., also of Edmonton, Alberta earned the 2019 Marketing Excellence Award for their overall success in numerous marketing categories, including a win in the Direct Promotion – Print category.

The CHBA National Awards for Housing Excellence are highly competitive, and this year’s Ontario entries were strong and numerous, with strong results in both the production and custom home categories, as well as in home renovations.

Other significant awards included Timberworx Custom Homes, of Aberfoyle, Ontario which won the 2019 Net Zero Home Award and three others, while Paradise Estates, of West Kelowna, BC, took home the 2019 Community Development Award.

CHBA outgoing president Nathan Stone commented: “As a homebuilder, I am tremendously impressed by the quality, design and innovation that this year’s Award winners represent.
