What are the MNPHA Awards About

MNPHA’s mission is to build and support a strong and diverse non-profit housing sector.  We work together with our members to promote housing excellence through the MNPHA Awards.  MNPHA Awards recognize and reward individuals (staff, board members and tenants), groups and non-profits who have made an outstanding contribution to the quality of non-profit housing.

Award Categories

Awards are presented in three categories:

Spirit of Achievement  Award

Spirit of Service Award

  • Honours an employee or volunteer that helped make their non-profit a better place to live and who serves as a model to employees and volunteers across Manitoba

Harry Lehotsky Spirit of Leadership Award
