The Award Categories

What are the BDA's?

The Building Diversity Awards will recognize contractors and unions associated with major infrastructure and urban development projects that are taking extraordinary steps to increase the participation of Black, Indigenous and racialized workers, including youth, women and newcomers within their organizations. Recipients of this award will be recognized at an Awards Celebration taking place on May 13th 2021.  

Award recipients will be recognized for one or more steps they are taking that correspond to the Global Diversity and Inclusion Benchmarks (standards for organizations around the world), as adapted by BuildForce Canada for the Construction Industry.

Award recipients will be eligible for assistance to develop a comprehensive plan to recruit and embrace the diversity of their local workforce.
