The CHBA CO's Okanagan Housing Awards of Excellence (OHAE) will help leverage your company’s brand. Consumers and industry want to buy from, and work with, award-winning companies. The OHAE offer your company an exciting avenue to achieve public and industry recognition.

The Okanagan Valley residential construction industry is increasingly competitive and consumers are savvier than ever. Builders, renovators and designers need to explore new and meaningful ways to distinguish their brand, people, products and services.  The Canadian Home Builders’ Association of the Central Okanagan (CHBA CO) Housing Awards are designed to provide members of all sizes with an equal opportunity to compete in a local awards program that recognizes outstanding dedication to construction and design excellence.

The CHBA CO Housing Awards is an industry-specific marketing program built by members, for members.  The entire program – from categories to entry forms — is reviewed annually to ensure the program reflects the changing nature of the industry and remains relevant and meaningful to members’ businesses and customers. Award-winning builders/renovators and designers, sourced from outside the Okanagan Valley market are brought in to judge the peer-reviewed Housing Awards.

The CHBA CO has established strong partnerships with respected and integrated media groups, such as Castanet, KelownaNow, VernonNow, Vernon Morning Star, and The Daily Courier to ensure the OHAE brand continues to grow and positively impacts finalists’ and winners’ brand awareness, public recognition and industry profile.
