The Oakville Chamber of Commerce and The Rotary Club of Oakville West are pleased to present the 22nd Annual Oakville Awards for Business Excellence (OABE) that will culminate in a Gala Dinner on Wednesday, March 29, 2017 at the Oakville Conference and Banquet Centre. The nominees for this year’s awards were officially announced at the OABE Nominee reception on Tuesday, February 7th at the Holiday Inn, Oakville Centre.

This year, the winners will be chosen from nominees in nine categories: RBC Small Business of the Year, Bell Mid-size Business of the Year, Large Business of the Year, Franchisee of the Year, Professional Services Provider of the Year, The Morris Mercanti Restaurateur of the Year, KPMG Entrepreneur of the Year, Genworth Community Builder of the Year, and Oakville Hydro Conservation Leadership Award.

At the gala, the winner of Oakville’s Business Icon Award and Charity or Not-for-Profit Excellence Award will be announced. The Business Icon Award recognizes a prominent Oakville business which is highly regarded in the business community. The Charity or Not-for-Profit Excellence Award honours a charity or not-for-profit organization which is highly regarded in the community and raises funds or provides services to improve the lives of people within the community.

“This year we received over 150 nominations from the Oakville community; a record number of nominations! The judges carefully reviewed all of the nominations and selected a list of 78 nominees for the Oakville Awards for Business Excellence” stated John Sawyer, President of the Oakville Chamber of Commerce. “I congratulate all of the finalists on achieving this honour; it is proof of their hard work and dedication. They truly represent the best of Oakville’s business community.”

Working in partnership with The Rotary Club of Oakville West, the majority of funds raised from the Gala Dinner will be donated directly to the club’s local youth programs.

“The Oakville Awards for Business Excellence gala has raised more than $500,000 since it began over twenty years ago,” said Rotary President, David Abboud. “Last year’s dinner set a record for attendance comprised of over 600 business, community and political leaders. We are looking forward to a fantastic evening to celebrate business excellence in Oakville.”
