About Pillar Community Innovation Awards

Share your stories. Inspire by example. Celebrate deserving individuals, organizations and enterprises.

Since launching in 2006, the Pillar Community Innovation Awards has evolved into one of the biggest celebrations of positive community impact in our city. Storytelling is at the core of this event - we honour individuals and organizations that are doing exceptional work to help create a more engaged, more vibrant, more inclusive community.

Why take the time to tell stories and celebrate when there is so much work left to do?

Because Storytelling is a powerful tool for change. Stories help us find the strength to continue the work. Stories help us hear voices that can go silent. Stories remind us that we are in service to each other and that at our core, we are resilient and strong. 

The Pillar Community Innovation Awards celebrates how individuals, organizations and enterprises are investing in positive community impact in the categories of Innovation, Leadership, Impact, Collaboration and Community Choice. Join us by recognizing those who are doing exceptional work in these areas.

Whether you're looking for volunteer opportunities,
networking events or a job in the nonprofit sector, we can help.
