Celebrate with OMDA

Masonry in Ontario has a long history and a bright future. It has a presence in our memories and our hopes, as well as being a tangible part of our everyday lives. Masonry provides the means to create architecture that is innovative, sustainable and secure. Vision, beauty and strength: these are characteristics that radiate from the finest masonry structures. It takes talented minds and hands working in harmony to bring great buildings to life. We believe that such excellence in design and workmanship deserves to be honoured. The Ontario Masonry Design Awards have been created in recognition of the amazing work we do in this industry. Please join us for an evening of celebration.


This awards program is the only one of its kind in Ontario and highly reputed for recognizing substantial, imaginative and creative uses of masonry in building design and construction.

The Masonry Contractors' Association of Toronto (MCAT) and the Ontario Masonry Contractors' Association (OMCA) are pleased to announce the launch of the second Ontario Masonry Design Awards. These awards recognize the teams of engineers, architects, consultants, owners, masonry contractors and suppliers for substantial, imaginative and aesthetically pleasing uses of masonry in building design and construction. The competition is two-tiered, with 11 categories at the Regional Level and 15 at the Provincial Level (including four Provincial-only categories). Winners from the Regional Awards will be elevated to finalists for the Provincial Awards. All submissions are made in two phases. In Phase I, abstracts are submitted for pre-qualification. In Phase II, qualified projects will be elevated to Nominees, at which time a full submission will confirm nomination of the project.
