The Land Awards recognize initiatives that demonstrate leadership, innovation and collaboration in sustainable land use in BC. The awards, conceived by the Real Estate Foundation of BC, celebrate and honour the non-profit organizations, private companies and government bodies behind the initiatives, and the people who make it all happen.
Eligible nominees are BC-based organizations—both for-profit and non-profit—that have undertaken current programs or recently-completed projects, primarily within BC. Nominees must be working with or have worked with others—non-profits, government agencies, educational institutions, businesses, and/or individuals—in a collaborative way to plan and carry out the project or program for which they are nominated.
As long as they meet the time requirements, previously nominated projects that have not received an award may be nominated again. Nominations are open until September 7, 2012.
This year’s awards take place on Friday, October 26 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Vancouver, with Ed Begley, Jr. as the keynote speaker.
