Introducing the winners of the 2024 CHBA National Awards for Housing Excellence


Leaders in the homebuilding, renovating and marketing communities once again gathered for the prestigious Canadian Home Builders’ Association (CHBA) National Awards for Housing Excellence recently, this year staged in Saint John, NB.

Forty-eight awards for excellence in housing were presented to the best of the best during CHBA’s Home Building Week in Canada.

It was a record-breaking year for the competition, with more than 900 entries from across the country, making each of the 48 categories highly contested.

“This year was our largest awards competition ever,” says CEO Kevin Lee. “We received entries from small family-run businesses that build and renovate just a few homes a year, and from larger companies that are building the neighbourhoods Canadians live in. The calibre of entries is a testament to the work and skills that are needed in the residential construction industry.”

In the following pages, we present winners that went home with the biggest awards and multiple awards. For a complete list, as well as an image gallery of all finalists, visit awards.
