The Canadian Public Works Association (CPWA) has named the winners of its 2018 National Public Works Week (NPWW) awards. The awards were announced at the CPWA luncheon held as part of the American Public Works Association’s (APWA) Public Works Expo held in Kansas City, Missouri.
The CPWA’s annual awards program recognizes the work done by communities during National Public Works Week, held across Canada and the United States during the third week of May. The entries are based on specific criteria including staff involvement, education, public outreach, events held, political involvement, and creativity.
Four of the award categories are based on population size:
- Less than 10,000
- 10,000 to 29,999
- 30,000 to 99,999
- 100,000 or more
There is also a new award category this year, recognizing a municipality who is submitting an award nomination for the first time.
The winners of the 2018 awards are:
- First time nominee – County of Leduc, Alta.
- Less than 10,000 – Town of Redwater, Alta.
- Less than 30,000 – District of Squamish, B.C.
