Cantiro Wins 4 of the Top Awards at the 2023 CHBA Edmonton Awards!

By Cantiro Group

We are thrilled to announce that Cantiro has won four of the top awards at this year’s CHBA Edmonton Awards of Excellence, marking a historic achievement for our organization.  

A first in the industry, no other company has won these four awards in the same year. This accomplishment is the culmination of several years of hard work, dedication, and transformation across our company’s practices, processes and products. We thank our team and trade partners for making this year an outstanding success.

Cantiro totaled 16 award wins across Development, Single Family, Multi-Family and Advertising categories including Best Net Zero Home. An additional 17 Cantiro entries were recognized as finalists in their categories.

Our company has a proud history of providing high quality products and services to our customers. Five years ago, we embarked on a journey to take our organization to the next level. We restructured and rebranded – bringing Dolce Vita, Beaverbrook and Inhouse under a new Cantiro banner. We streamlined our processes, eliminated redundancies, and reorganized our teams to better align with our goals. We invested heavily in technology, tools, and training to enable our teams to work more efficiently and effectively. Congratulations to all 2023 award winners and the amazing Cantiro team. We look forward to Cantiro continuing to grow in our communities and further living our purpose of creating environments for amazing lives to happen.
