The Yellowknife Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the 2019 Business Award nominees.
To qualify for an award, businesses must be in operation for more than three years (with the exception of nominees for the “Breakout New Business Award”), they must meet the award-specific criteria, and they must be a member of the Yellowknife Chamber of Commerce. Businesses are not eligible to be nominated for an award that they won the previous year.
“Congratulations to our 2019 nominees! Our awards recognize and celebrate a diverse range of business success – from financial achievement to customer service excellence, to community involvement, to safety culture and innovation,”  Alayna Ward, 1st Vice President, of the Yellowknife Chamber of Commerce said. “We received 135 nominations for 10 awards – a testament to the excellence demonstrated within the Yellowknife business community.”
