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!


The Greater Parkland Regional Chamber of Commerce Business Awards of Distinction judging panel follow a strict judging process.  Judges are selected on an annual basis, have no relationship with any of the nominees, do not hold any volunteer, or paid positions with the Greater Parkland Regional Chamber of Commerce, and will declare any conflict of interest prior to judging. The decision of the judging panel is final.

All information submitted is strictly confidential.  All persons who may come in contact with a nomination, such as the Awards Coordinator and judges, are all bound by a confidentiality agreement.
