The City of Richmond Heritage Commission is encourage the public to submit nominations for the 2017 Richmond Heritage Awards, to be presented on Saturday, May 13, 2017 at 2:00 pm as part of the Richmond Heritage Fairs Closing Ceremony in the Performance Hall of Richmond Cultural Centre.

Historic buildings, cultural and natural heritage landscapes, artifacts, and oral and written histories are all rich resources that contribute to our shared community identity today. The annual Richmond Heritage Awards recognize the accomplishments of individuals and organizations in the conservation of historic places, and education and awareness about Richmond's diverse heritage.
Some of the ways an individual or organization may earn special recognition are:
- preservation, restoration, rehabilitation or adaptive reuse of a historic place, such as a building or structure, or conservation of a cultural heritage landscape;
- promotion or awareness of local heritage through education, outreach or advocacy; or
- contributions to local knowledge of heritage in public history or interpretation projects.
The Awards Jury will include members of the Richmond Heritage Commission. All decisions of the jury are final.
