Outstanding efforts to preserve Vancouver’s heritage were recognized this week at the 2017 Vancouver Heritage Awards ceremony.

The awards acknowledge projects and special accomplishments that range from restoration and rehabilitation of buildings, features, or sites to work that promotes heritage conservation, public education, advocacy, and awareness in Vancouver.

Award recipients were recognized in five categories: lifetime achievement, honour, merit, recognition, and the People’s Choice.

While no Kitsilano projects were singled out, the Vancouver Heritage Foundation Site Finder was acknowledged with an Award of Honor for the creation of their online, interactive map of the 2,200 sites on the Vancouver Heritage Register.
