About the awards

The awards, set to take place at the Isabel Bader Centre on Thursday, September 22nd, 2022, are a celebration of business excellence, recognizing Chamber members and Kingston business community 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.

Award Categories

From start-ups to local legends, the awards shine a light on hard-working businesses, business people and community leaders in nine categories worth celebrating. Finalists and award winners are chosen by an independent panel of prominent Chamber Executives from across the province who serve as judges.

Who can apply?

Applications can be submitted directly from Kingston-owned businesses or nominations can be submitted on their behalf from customers, suppliers and stakeholders that believe the business is deserving of recognition.


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.  Any employee can apply on behalf of their 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.  

Nominate a local business or organization

Third party nominations are a great way to recognize your favourite local businesses. Tell us why you believe the business deserves to be nominated for an award, and we will notify the nominated company so that they can celebrate the acknowledgement with their team and complete their submission kit.
