2017 Ernest Assaly Award

​​Building Confidence Comes from Building Excellence

In 2017, Tarion introduced a new way to recognize one outstanding builder in Ontario. Called the Ernest Assaly Award, this recognition is given to a new home builder who best demonstrates a commitment to building quality and innovation, customer service and community involvement.

Similar to a lifetime achievement award, The Ernest Assaly Award recognizes the highest level of excellence in Ontario home building. This new award also honours the legacy of Ernest Assaly, a highly respected leader in the residential building industry who was Tarion's first Chair. ​

Only a select 38 of Ontario's registered builders were invited to submit a nomination package for the inaugural Ernest Assaly Award. The recipient was determined by Tarion's Board of Directors and presented on April 19, 2017.

Tarion is proud to present the 2017 Ernest Assaly Award to Lockwood Brothers Construction. These award finalists and recipients represent builders who care deeply about their customers and are committed to high-quality construction and service.

For over 40 years Tarion has been standing behind Ontario's new home warranty to help bring building excellence to new home owners. Tarion would like to thank the nominees and finalists for instilling confidence in the new home buying experience across Ontario.
