Three local governments were recognized last week in BC for their leadership in the use of wood both architecturally and structurally in their community projects. Wood WORKS! BC Community Recognition Awards are presented annually to communities that have been exemplary advocates for wood. Awards were presented last September at the Union of BC Municipalities Conference, and the remaining three awards were presented at area association meetings last week. The recent recipients are: Association of Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities: District of Saanich – Central Saanich Fire Hall. Southern Interior Local Government Association: District of Logan Lake – Logan Lake Fire Hall | Town of Osoyoos – Osoyoos Fire Hall. Information on the other 2017 award recipients can be found HERE.
This year marks the 14th year Wood WORKS! BC will recognize and celebrate the successes of communities across the province which have built projects using wood.
The nomination form for the 2018 Community Recognition Awards is available online HERE. If you know of a wood structure that was completed by a local government in the last three years, please consider nominating it – it will only take 5 minutes!
The process is really simple. Just download the nomination form and follow the instructions to enter the project by the nomination deadline of August 24th. That’s it!

The 2018 Wood WORKS! BC Community Recognition Awards will be presented at the annual Area Association Luncheons at the 2018 UBCM convention in Whistler from September 10-14, 2018.
