The Mayor’s Awards aim to promote awareness of the need for accessibility, services and employment for individuals with disabilities. Presented annually, these Awards recognize individuals, organizations or businesses within Edmonton that demonstrate a commitment to persons with disabilities.

They are given to a project team or architect whose designs or projects demonstrate creative sensitivity toward the accessibility of persons with disabilities. This includes any building or outdoor space that completed construction or has undergone extensive renovations anytime during the previous year. In choosing the award recipients, the selection committee sought adherence to relevant items as noted in the Advisory Board Checklist for Accessibility and Universal Design, Section 3.7 of the Building Code, and the Barrier-Free Design Guide.
