2013 Award of Recognition in Housing
The Award of Recognition for Housing is an Action Housing initiative to promote best practices in a program, a strategy or a project that has been developed within the last two years. Although it is essential that the candidates demonstrate their commitment towards the struggle against homelessness and assisting marginalized communities, the Award is granted for specific best practices programs but not for work that is carried out on a day-to-day basis. An organization, group or individual can have more than one submission. With its Award of Recognition for Housing, Action Housing honors non-profit and non-governmental organizations, individuals within the private and public sectors, or anyone who has shown excellence or innovation in the field of housing, and more specifically, has been an advocate in the struggle against homelessness and has assisted marginalized populations who have faced housing issues.
The Award ceremony will take place on Thursday, December 5th, 2013, during Action Housing's Annual Benefit Evening at the École secondaire publique De La Salle, 501 Old St-Patrick St. Ottawa.
Eligibility: Non-profit and non-governmental organizations, individuals within the private and public sectors, as well as any resident of Ottawa are eligible.
Deadline: All candidacies must be received at the latest on Friday, November 8th, 2013.
Nominations: Nominations for candidacy can be presented by an official organization, by an individual or a group submitting their own candidate.
Adjudication and Submissions: Action-Housing will appoint a jury composed of 3 members: two Action-Logement Board members and one member of the community. The members of the Jury examine the candidates and make their selection. The decision of the jury cannot be appealed.
