Doors are swinging wide open to HAVAN’s Awards for Housing Excellence Gala

Vancouver, BC: Typically reserved for entrants and sponsors, this year, the Homebuilders Association Vancouver (HAVAN) is excited to invite friends, family and everyone from across Canada to watch live as we announce the best in homebuilding, renovation and design on Friday, June 19th, from 6:45pm during the first-ever online HAVAN Awards for Housing Excellence Gala: Home Edition, Metro Vancouver’s premier housing awards program.



Home. It’s the most important place to be these days as we learn to live in a world with COVID-19, and building and designing homes is what our members do best! It seems only logical to throw a great house party and celebrate the 2020 HAVAN Awards for Housing Excellence finalists and winners!



People are taking a closer look at their living spaces these days with all the cocooning we have been doing of late.

The Gala Home Edition is the perfect opportunity to peek into one of the world’s most sought-after housing markets and get inspired from the best in new home construction, renovation and design in Metro Vancouver.
