MONTREAL, Friday, May 14, 2021 – BOMA

BOMA Quebec was proud to highlight the leadership of the commercial property sector during the BOMA Quebec Grand Gala held on May 13, 2021. This virtual recognition event, which brought together more than 250 key players in the commercial real estate sector, was an opportunity to pay tribute to industry leaders taking part in the BUILDING ENERGY CHALLENGE, the BOMA BEST certification program and the BOMA Awards.

Held every two years to honour excellence in property management, the BOMA Awards competition is the starting point of a journey that will lead the winning organizations to compete with the best in the industry on the national, and then international levels. 

Honorary president of the virtual event was Yves-André Godon, the managing director for Quebec at BentallGreenOak, which was also a presenting partner of the event.


The BUILDING OF THE YEAR award honours the stars of the commercial real estate industry who stand out for their excellent building management, the quality of building operations, their concern for resource conservation and environmental awareness. This designation is the most prestigious recognition of the commercial real estate industry in North America.
