2021 Finalists for 27th LDCC Business Excellence Awards

Every year, the Leamington District Chamber of Commerce, residents, employees, and business owners join to honour and celebrate business excellence. These awards publicly recognize outstanding businesses, organizations and individuals that demonstrate excellence in business and a passion for the community.

Once again, the LDCC has had to think outside the box and decided to bring back the drive-in theatre style for the event, similar to 2020. Nominations were submitted online or brought into the Chamber office and several judges from the Business Excellence Awards Committee gathered to choose the finalists and winners of each category.

Also this year, we will be having a colouring contest for a chance to win a custom caricature by Artist Todd Stahl.
