By Newinhomes on Aug 21, 2018

The Ontario Home Builders’ Association recently announced the finalists of the 2018 Awards of Distinction! Excellence in building, design, renovation, sales and marketing is recognized across 41 categories.

“This year, we’ve seen the rise of #homebelievers in Ontario – that is, government, builders, renovators, and local champions rallying around the great Canadian dream of home ownership. The OHBA Awards of Distinction has always celebrated that dream by recognizing excellence in homebuilding, professional renovation, and sales and marketing; all of these efforts which lead to more housing supply and choice in communities across Ontario,” says OHBA President Pierre Dufresne. “Congratulations to the 2018 Awards of Distinction finalists!”

The most prestigious award is the 2018 Ontario Home Builder of the Year; and the finalists are: Great Gulf, Minto, and Tridel.

Until August 24, voting is open for the People’s Choice Award. All your options are finalists in the Project of the Year Low-Rise and Mid/High-Rise categories.

We’ve had the pleasure of writing about and visiting many of these new home communities, and we have to say, it’s going to be a tough decision when it comes time to voting. We’ll be happy to see any of the above take home the Project of the Year Award or the People’s Choice Award.

The winners of the 2018 Awards of Distinction will be announced on September 25 at the OHBA Conference in Ottawa.
