Association Awards

The OGCA honours its members with three awards:

CHAIRMAN’S AWARD OF RECOGNITION  – The Chairman’s Award of Recognition was created to honour an individual affiliated with the Association, making an outstanding contribution to the general contracting industry.  Individuals must have contributed to the General Contracting Industry in general and specifically to the Ontario General Contractors Association (OGCA), through their involvement on the Board of Directors, Standing or Ad-hoc Committees and/or any other stakeholder Committees.

JOCK TINDALE MEMORIAL AWARD – The Jock Tindale Memorial Award is to honour an individual in the industry who has demonstrated a high standard of ethics and integrity in dealings with industry participants.  This award is dedicated to the memory of John William (Jock) Tindale who served on the OGCA Board of Directors from 1983 to 1996, and as Chairman in 1992 – 93. Due to his tireless commitment to ensuring that the general contracting industry was continually striving for the highest standards of ethics and integrity, Jock was recognized and widely respected by all industry stakeholders. This award ensures that the commitment to keeping these goals are continuously alive and flourishing in the general contracting industry.

DOUGLAS CHALMERS AWARD FOR SAFETY – The Douglas Chalmers Award is awarded to an Individual, Group, a member company or an Association, that has made significant contributions to the advancement of occupational health and safety in the construction industry.
