The Chamber has named 27 local organizations as potential winners of its Business Excellence Awards in various categories: Manufacturer, Retail/Wholesale, Service, Young Entrepreneur, Not-for-Profit, and Employer of the Year.

Award nominations are based on overall business excellence and the criteria include excellence in business leadership, community contributions, entrepreneurship, environment, employee welfare, innovation and market growth.

The list of finalists is now public information, but the names of the winners are still a closely guarded secret. The winners will be announced at the Chamber Business Awards Gala on April 5 at the Burlington Convention Centre. Also being presented at the Chamber Awards Gala will be the Burlington Economic Development Corporation (BEDC) Technology & Innovation Award, and Mayor Rick Goldring’s Community Service Awards.
