BOMA Toronto celebrates excellence on the awards stages
Share |


December 2, 2016 

This year, we celebrated 39 property management teams and buildings at our Celebration of Excellence Gala, we had three teams competing internationally and then most recently Toronto and the GTA took home 10 out of the 17 national awards at BOMEX 2016 in Regina! Congratulations to all of our award winning teams!


Congratulations to all of our 2016 local winners! We have outstanding buildings in Toronto and the GTA that we should all be proud of, thanks to the talented teams who manage them. The awards stream, from BOMA Toronto, to BOMA Canada, to International, is robust and enhances the ROI of every property that participates, proving a very compelling value proposition!

39 winners were announced at BOMA Toronto's 2016 Celebration of Excellence Gala, an event that attracted over 500 real estate professionals on May 12th at the Westin Harbour Castle. 

We were honoured to welcome our special guest Dianne Saxe, Environmental Commissioner of Ontario. Once again, co-host of CityTV’s Breakfast Television, Kevin Frankish delighted the crowd as our Master of Ceremonies.
