WHAT BUSINESSES ARE ELIGIBLE?
All businesses or Not-For-Profit organizations within the Greater Oshawa boundaries; Oshawa/Whitby border to Hwy 15/35, and north to Oshawa/Scugog border – whether they are a member of the Greater Oshawa Chamber of Commerce or not are eligible. Any businesses or Not-For-Profit organizations outside the Greater Oshawa boundaries may be nominated provided that the company is a member of the Greater Oshawa Chamber of Commerce. The nominee or related business must not have been a recipient in any category for 3 years.
WHAT IS THE NOMINATION PROCESS?
Any person may participate in the nomination process by supplying the information required. Nominees may be nominated for one category only. Nominees will be contacted by the Chamber notifying them of their nomination and the process to follow.
WHAT IS THE SELECTION PROCESS?
Nominees in each category will be contacted by a member of the Chamber Selection Committee and will be asked to complete an online questionnaire. Upon completion of the questionnaire, the Selection Committee will meet to select the recipient in each category. The honorees will be recognized at the Business Excellence Awards Gala in September 2022. The selection committee is comprised of Chamber of Commerce Members and Board members. If a member of the Selection Committee is also a nominee, that committee member will be removed from the selection panel for the year. The Committees decisions are based only on the information provided by the nominees. The Evaluation Committee ‘s decisions are final. Two finalists will be selected in each category, and the winner will be announced at the awards gala.
