2020 Civic Awards

The City of Port Moody invites residents to nominate deserving candidates for the 2020 Civic Awards.

“Sometimes heroes are easily recognizable to everyone, but often they work quietly in the background, providing support and inspiration so that others can shine,” says Mayor Rob Vagramov. “These are Port Moody’s everyday heroes – our coaches, athletes, teachers, business owners, and members of community groups, as well as our advocates for local heritage, arts and culture, and the environment. If you know a person or a group that contributes to the community in a meaningful way, I encourage you to nominate them today.”

Nominations will be accepted until Friday, July 31, 2020 in these five categories:

  • the Peter Hulbert Accessibility Award honours an individual, business, community group, educator, or government agency that goes above and beyond expectations in removing barriers for individuals with disabilities;
  • the Arts Award celebrates an individual, organization, or business that significantly contributes to, and participates in, the artistic or cultural life of Port Moody;
  • the Environmental Award is given to an individual, organization, or business that advances environmental preservation and awareness;
  • the Heritage Award honours an individual, organization, or business that advances heritage conservation in Port Moody through special initiatives or projects that preserve, rehabilitate, restore, or create awareness of a cultural resource; and
  • the Sports Award is presented to three local athletes, teams, or “builders” (e.g. coaches, officials, sports medicine practitioners, etc.) who are positive role models and encourage young people to get involved in sports and lead healthy lifestyles – new in 2020, one of the three awards will be presented to a youth aged 12 to 19 years old.
