Both APWA and CPWA have a number of individual and project awards which get presented each year at PWX. Winners of OPWA awards are encouraged to make submissions to APWA/CPWA, as appropriate, for the equivalent national awards.

Arguably, APWA’s most prestigious award is the Top Ten Public Works Leader of the Year Award. Since its inception, a number of Canadians have been a recipient. In the past, OPWA has usually lent its support to award submittals from Ontario candidates and have endorsed their applications. While we would like to continue with this tradition, we are not always of aware of nominations by or on behalf of OPWA members. In order to correct this situation, we would ask that anyone arranging for a Top Ten submission should notify OPWA well ahead of time in order that the Board can consider a formal endorsement of the submission. Notification should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
