About the awards
Business Excellence Awards
The awards are a celebration of business excellence, recognizing Chamber members and future members who have made exceptional contributions through their involvement and leadership in the community. It is a time for the business community to come together and show their appreciation towards businesses and entrepreneurs that have helped shape the Kingston region.
Nominations may be submitted by Chamber members and the community; self-nominations are also encouraged. New this year, there needs to be a minimum of 3 nominees per category for the award to be presented. A judging panel comprised of community partners and Chamber volunteers determine the winners.
As a Nominator
Submitting a nomination is a great way to recognize your favourite local business. You only need to provide 200 words about why the business deserves to be nominated in the appropriate category. We will pass your submission along to the nominated company, so that they can share and celebrate the acknowledgement with their team.
As a Nominee or Self-Nominee
No one knows your business better than you, and this is your opportunity to share your success story and shine a spotlight on your business. Submitting a self-nomination or completing a nomination submitted by a third party is a great way to celebrate the achievements of your business and your team.
Kingston Business Excellence Award recipients in each category will be announced this fall. We hope that we will be able to come together in person to honour our local business community, but we will be monitoring the situation carefully. Stay tuned for more details about the timing and format of this year's event.
