Dedicated to the rehabilitation and revitalization of sites that were once contaminated, under-utilized, and undeveloped, the Brownie Awards provide annual recognition and celebration of brownfield projects, people, and policies across Canada. These renewed residential, commercial, industrial, and open space projects contribute to the growth and resilient recovery of healthy cities and communities.

The Brownie Awards are presented through the partnership of the Canadian Brownfields Network (CBN) and Actual Media Inc. This year, the Brownie Awards boasts the most geographically diverse variety of projects and project teams in the history of the awards program.

“The redevelopment of brownfields provides important economic and environmental opportunities to create cleaner, safer, and more socially vibrant communities. It’s remarkable to see cities and towns represented across Canada this year,” says Christopher De Sousa, chair of the Brownie Awards jury and past president of the board of directors of the CBN. “We’re proud to honour the well-deserving award finalists, and we look forward to celebrating their outstanding achievements at this year’s Brownie Awards gala.”
