Allan De Genova
West Vancouver, British Columbia

Allan De Genova is nominated for contributions to military personnel, first responders, Veterans and their families with Honour House Society.

He is the “driving force” behind the establishment of Honour House Society and has been its President for over a decade. Through his tireless work, he secured the support of many organizations and individuals, and his vision came to fruition when Honour House opened its doors in 2010. 

Honour House Society is a non-profit, charitable organization that seeks to provide a “home away from home” and place to recover for military personnel and first responders while they are receiving medical care or coping with a tragedy. Since opening, Honour House has provided over 10,000 nights of accommodation in a heritage home.  

Recently, Honour House Society launched Honour Ranch, which will offer access to natural, agricultural and environmental treatments and will have mental health professionals available on site. Scheduled to open in 2020, the 120 acre property in Ashcroft, BC contains ten separate cottages and a main lodge. He has made the opening of Honour Ranch a priority and, despite running a real estate marketing company, has poured “hours, days, and weeks” of his time in support of our Veterans. 

He also worked to raise the over $1.2 million dollars required to refurbish the largest cenotaph in Greater Vancouver.
