Heritage Awards

Heritage Awards are considered biennially by the City's Heritage Advisory Commission and presented by Mayor and Council. The purpose of the Awards is to give recognition to those who have made a significant effort in support of heritage conservation in the City. Conservation of aesthetic, historic, scientific, cultural, social or spiritual importance or significance for past, present or future generations will help foster a recognizable sense of place unique to the City.

The Heritage Advisory Commission considers awards every two years in the following categories:

Heritage Awards nomination deadline is November 29, 2019.
Residential Conservation
Honouring the outstanding restoration or adaptive re-use of a residential heritage building on the Heritage Registry or its historic landscaping. Large and small scale projects are both recognized in this category.
Commercial Conservation

Honouring the outstanding restoration or adaptive re-use of a commercial heritage building on the Heritage Registry.

Heritage Project Recognition
Honouring the retention and/or enhancement of heritage resources through the re-introduction of original materials or elements. This may apply to buildings and structures not currently listed on the heritage inventory as well as landscapes and natural features.
Heritage Awareness
Honouring an individual or organization for outstanding community achievement in support of heritage conservation. Examples of eligible projects include but are not limited to literature, art, and volunteerism.

Heritage Awards

In an effort to expand the recognition for exemplary heritage work, starting in 2016 the City of North Vancouver the Heritage Program now has two nomination options. The two nomination options encourage residents to nominate smaller scale conservation efforts throughout the community and the second enables industry, organizations and residents to nominate their own heritage projects and programs following project completion.

Nominate a Neighbour

The maintenance and conservation of a heritage building may be noticed by neighbours, but not by the City. The intent of this nomination process is to empower residents to nominate the great work of heritage home owners and the efforts of residents who have contributed to the conservation of the scientific, cultural, social or spiritual history. General building maintenance including window restoration, re-roofing and re-painting help retain a building’s heritage value and extend its physical life. Equally as important is the conservation of the City’s natural, social and cultural history.

Award categories include: Large Scale Residential Conservation, Small Scale Residential Conservation and Heritage Awareness. Additional information on the categories can be found on the nomination form.

The nomination form and submission documents are available here.

General Nomination

Nominations are encouraged from developers and home owners who have managed the heritage conservation project. The intent of this nomination is to empower those who completed the works to submit their work for consideration by the Heritage Advisory Commission.

Award categories include: Residential Conservation, Commercial Conservation, Heritage Project Recognition and Heritage Awareness. Additional information on the categories can be found on the nomination form.
