NUQO Wins Built Environment Award at the 2024 Land Awards

On June 13th, we were honoured to accept the Built Environment Award at the 2024 Land Awards Gala, alongside our co-nominee Squamish Nation.

The land awards, presented every two years by the Real Estate Foundation of BC, celebrate organizations who are making a difference in socially just, sustainable land use.


Our fellow nominees were an impressive bunch, and we were inspired by their projects, partnerships, and dedication. We were uplifted by their innovation and motivated by their commitment to our collective future. 

Congratulations to the winners in other categories: four other projects won in the categories of Land Use and Conservation, Fresh Water, Food Sovereignty, and Real Estate. Two individuals won for their advocacy and leadership: Xtli’li’ye Lydia Hwitsum from the Quw'utsun Nation as Land Champion, and Sulatiye’ Maiya Modeste, Project Co-ordinator for the P'hwulhp (Garry Oak) Restoration Project, as Emerging Leader.

A full list of nominees and winners and their projects can be found at 

Thanks to the Real Estate Foundation for your work in promoting and supporting these vital projects. Together we can build a thriving, equitable society!
