Heritage Conservation Award

This award recognizes special efforts of specific projects to protect, conserve and reuse structures of high historic or architectural value. It may be awarded for commercial, institutional or residential projects, involving the sensitive and adaptive use and/or re-use of the structure, providing for their long-term sustainability. The award can acknowledge both building owners and professionals involved in the project. Structures do NOT need to be designated (on the City of Winnipeg’s List of Historical Resources).

Distinguished Service Award

This award recognizes the special contribution of individuals or organizations that have gone beyond professional duties and demonstrated a concerted effort and leadership in protecting, conserving, promoting or communicating the historic and/or architectural values of Winnipeg’s built heritage.

Youth Award

This award recognizes the special contribution of an individual under the age of thirty that has gone beyond professional duties and demonstrated a concerted effort and leadership in protecting, conserving, promoting or communicating the historic and/or architectural values of Winnipeg’s built heritage.
