Staff at the Heritage Resources Centre won awards at the Architectural Conservancy's Annual Awards Dinner. The University of Waterloo's Daily Bulliten carried the story:

"Robert Shipley of the UW school of planning received the Margaret and Nicholas Hill Heritage Landscape Award from the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario at its annual awards dinner in Toronto on Friday night. The award recognizes individuals and their projects that have led to a heightened level of awareness and appreciation of Ontario's significant landscapes. Shipley and ACO have worked as partners on many heritage related projects over the years, the most recent being an Ontario wide study of Heritage Conservation Districts called "Heritage Districts Work". At the same ceremony, four researchers from the Heritage Resources Centre in the School of Planning — Kayla Jonas, Paul Dubniak, Martha Fallis, and Lindsay Benjamin — received the ACO's A.K. Sculthorpe Award for Advocacy. This award recognizes their work in nominating heritage sites to the National Register, and for such projects as the recent study of 32 Heritage Conservation Districts, as well as for their leadership in communicating the value of heritage conservation to others, including dozens of city councils and community groups."
