TOBYŽ Awards

The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBYŽ) Awards is the most prestigious and comprehensive program of its kind in the commercial real estate industry recognizing quality in commercial real estate buildings and rewarding excellence in building management.

During the competition, all facets of a building's operations are thoroughly evaluated. Entries are judged on everything from community involvement to environmental and sustainability management.

TOBYŽ winners are recognized in specific categories of building size or type. Judging is based on building standards, community impact, tenant relations, energy conservation, environmental, regulatory and sustainability, emergency preparedness & security standards and the training of building personnel.

Winners at the local level will receive an invitation to enter into the BOMA Canada National Awards along with a registration form, directly from BOMA Canada. Once qualified, national applicants are provided access to the BOMA International's online awards portal where they can upload their entries. The online system is also used for judging at the national level.
