Centra Cares 2020 Home Renovation Contest

Centra Cares

Home is the starting place of love, hope and dreams and the Centra Cares Home Renovation Contest is excited to turn a family’s dream into a reality.

Do you know a deserving family who could use help with windows upgrades? Now is your chance to nominate a family for the fourth annual Centra Cares Home Renovation Contest. Whether it’s gazing at a view or letting the light pour in on a sunny afternoon, windows are one of those features that make a house feel like a home. But the reality is that many families can’t afford to have new windows installed. That’s why the Centra Cares Foundation is stepping in to give one family in need a full house of brand new windows – worth up to $15,000!


We are accepting nominations from August 4th – September 4th, 2020.  It could be a member of your family, a close friend, your neighbour or even yourself. Nominations for our giveaway will be accepted through the contest page at  All you have to do is share your story.  The nominations are always filled with moments of laughter, sadness, triumph, dedication, and resiliency and this year should be no different.

  • Why are you or the person you are nominating deserving of this prize?
  • What does this family mean to you or the community?
  • How has this family impacted those around them?
  • How will this impact them if chosen?

You are allowed to nominate as many people as you feel are deserving of the chance to win a full house of windows.

Don’t forget to share the news with your family and friends. Last year we had over 500 submissions coming from all over BC, and we want to do it all over again.  The winner will be announced the week of September 28th, 2020.  To learn more, visit our contest page. You can also stay locked to Centra’s Facebook and Instagram to get the latest updates.

What difference will this make to a family?

When people think of much-needed home renovations, they look to the interior of their home. A lot of times, people neglect some of the most significant pieces to a home renovation project, the windows. They are more than just an aesthetic upgrade; windows provide much-needed health, safety and energy-saving improvements.  The opportunity to make a difference in the health, safety, and most importantly, the lives of a deserving family are just a few of the core reasons we do this every year!

New windows bring a wide range of benefits to the home as they allow the air to keep flowing in and out (preventing the formation of mould), and they help families save up to 8% on their energy bills as old windows and doors can be responsible for 40% of a home’s energy loss. Additionally, Centra windows help keep families safe as they’re designed with multipoint or multiple security features. Do you know a family who deserves a full new set of windows? Nominate today at

The focus is on the homeowners' comfort and the technology that will be installed in the winner’s home is designed specifically around this. Windows will keep your home warmer during the winter, reduce drafts into the home, and will keep the home cooler in the summer, achieving all-season performance. Nominate today!
