Recognizing individuals and community-focused groups.

In 2016, Casera established its Community Award program to recognize individuals and community-focused groups that keep our neighbourhoods strong and vibrant. Since then, we’ve rewarded eight outstanding volunteers with Community Leadership Awards and seven remarkable non-profit organizations with Community Enrichment Awards.

“Every year, we’re proud to acknowledge the excellent work achieved by community volunteers and organizations,” explains Brent Thomas, Casera’s CEO. “The time and effort they put into helping our communities grow and thrive are immense, and we’re excited again to see who will receive this year’s awards.”

We’d like you to help us find 2022’s neighbourhood heroes. They’re the ones coaching sports teams, working with youths or seniors, or doing any of the other unsung volunteer jobs that make our communities better places. They’re the non-profit community groups quietly and continuously providing for and sustaining our neighbourhoods.
