About the Award

ONPHA’s Tenant Achievement Award recognizes up to four tenants or tenant groups who help make their non-profit housing communities better places to live.

These tenants have fostered community connections, improved the well-being of their neighbourhoods and made meaningful contributions to their communities that can serve as models to tenants across Ontario.
