The Greater Peterborough Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards

The Greater Peterborough Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the finalists for our 16th Annual Peterborough Business Excellence Awards, sponsored by Bell. These awards publicly recognize and honour local businesses and business people that have demonstrated a passion for excellence.

The finalists will be celebrated, and the award recipients announced live on the big stage at the Excellence Awards Ceremony on Wednesday, October 16th at Showplace Performance Centre. The evening begins at 6:30pm with a cocktail reception, featuring delicious appetizers provided by The Imperial Tandoor.
