Newcomer Landlord Award Nomination 2019

The Immigration Partnership, a collaboration of organizations across the community, is accepting nominations for the Waterloo Region Newcomer Landlord Award.  Now in its fourth year, the award recognizes landlords that go above and beyond to provide exemplary, innovative, flexible, caring and affordable housing solutions for recent immigrants and refugees in Waterloo Region.

To nominate an individual or a group/organization/business, complete the online nomination form below by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, October 4, 2019.  If you are nominating more than one landlord, use a separate submission for each nomination. This year we are NOT requiring nominators to ensure that the landlord they are nominating is aware BEFORE they submit a nomination form. Only if the landlord you nominate is selected, will we ask you to connect with the landlord to ensure they are aware, give permission to share their story, and to gather any additional information if necessary. The selected award recipients will be recognized at Waterloo Region's National Housing Day Awards Celebration in November 2019.

A text version of the survey is available if you need to preview the questions or if you are not able to submit it electronically.(https://docs.google.com/document/d/1dSD3ahGQ17azI1tNkP8TDcLAThaeOUGa0-Cgns5uils/edit?usp=sharing)
