2019 Heritage Winnipeg Annual Preservation Awards

Since 1985, Heritage Winnipeg has sponsored an annual awards program that seeks to recognize those people dedicated to the protection, restoration and conservation of Winnipeg's built heritage. Awards are also given to owners of heritage structures who seek to sensitively restore their buildings so that they become a productive element of the economical, cultural and social fabric of the community.

Awards are presented in three basic categories:

  1. Distinguished Service Award

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

  2. Heritage Conservation Award

    This award recognizes the special efforts and excellence in specific projects to protect, conserve and reuse structures of high historic or architectural value. Heritage Conservation Awards may be given specifically for commercial, institutional or residential projects that involve the sensitive and adaptive re-use of these structures and provide for their long-term protection.

    Heritage Conservation Awards may be given to the owners of commercial, institutional or residential structures with historical and/or architectural value and who provide long-term protection and conservation of key architectural elements for these structure and their sensitive adaptive use. Special recognition may also be given to consultants and contractors of the project selected for an award.

    In the case of a successful residential project, a special award will be given in the honour of C.W. Chivers, a well-known Winnipeg architect who designed buildings such as All Saint's Church, Balmoral Hall and the Assiniboine Park Pavilion.

  3. Youth Category

    This award recognizes the special contribution of non-professionals under the age of 30.
