Business Awards of Distinction

The Chamber of Commerce Business Awards of Distinction is a celebration of our business community. Over the years, we have recognized the high standards our entrepreneurs bring to business and our awards evening takes our celebration to great heights as we let our congratulations soar in honour of our nominees and awards winners. The Greater Parkland Regional Chamber awards program acknowledges local excellence annually along with Chambers across Canada during Small Business Week. It all started out as a community gathering to recognize exceptional businesses and individuals, something that we still do today!

 

We look forward to tentatively celebrating our Business Awards of Distinction on Thursday, January 27, 2022.  More information to come!

Congratulations to the 2020 Award Winners and Finalists!

The Business Awards of Distinction were restructured in 2020 due to public health orders and for the safety of all finalists and sponsors. The Chamber was able to visit each finalist at their business location to congratulate them on their accomplishments and present a basket of items that would have been present at the physical awards ceremony. We are proud of the Greater Parkland Region and their perseverance through an unimaginable year.
