Business awards

Recognizing great businesses

The Niverville Chamber of Commerce started its business recognition program in 2015 for the 2014 year with two categories: Business of the Year and Outstanding Customer Service.

In 2016, the Alex Fast Sr. Memorial Award was added to the program. This award recognizes a business that has made outstanding contributions to the community.

Nominations can be made at any time during the year. Awards are presented at the chamber's annual general meeting in the spring.

Details on nomination process, requirements, forms can be found at Business awards nominations.
