The Cochrane Community Awards program is overseen by a committee of local representatives including: educators, seniors, businesses, sustainability champions, as well as the Cochrane and District Chamber of Commerce and the Town of Cochrane.

The program is funded through sponsorship from local groups and businesses who recognize the value in activities that encourage community building and making Cochrane a vibrant place to live.

The awards were on hiatus in 2020 due to pandemic restrictions; they have returned and will be presented in a COVID-adapted awards ceremony with details to be announced at a later date.

The awards ceremony takes place on Sunday May 16, 2020.
