Congratulations to the 2014 Community Conservation Awards finalists!

Nine communities have been selected as finalists for the third annual Community Conservation Awards (CCAs), which recognize commitment to energy saving initiatives and strong conservation leadership.

The finalists are: 

  • Town of Halton Hills
  • City of Hamilton
  • City of London
  • City of Mississauga
  • Regional Municipality of Peel
  • City of Thorold
  • Regional Municipality of Waterloo
  • City of Welland
  • Regional Municipality of York

The OPA is pleased to recognize these municipalities for their leadership in conservation and energy efficiency. Now in its third year, the CCAs promote a culture of conservation and encourage Ontario’s municipalities to participate in conservation activities. The initiative is a collaborative effort led by the OPA with the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) and the Electricity Distributors Association (EDA).

The CCAs are open to all municipalities in Ontario and are presented to communities that demonstrate:

  • Conservation leadership
  • Innovation and market transformation
  • Corporate/internal and community engagement
  • Conservation achievements

Participating communities are required to provide a written submission that outlines their conservation efforts and a case study that highlights their specific conservation initiatives.

The finalists were selected by a judging panel comprised of OPA conservation specialists as well as five external judges who are experts in the municipal conservation field. This year’s winners will be announced on August 18, 2014 at the AMO annual general meeting.
