Nominations are pouring in for the 15th Annual Vancouver Island Business Excellence Awards, set for Thursday, January 22 at the Westin Bear Mountain Resort in Langford.

“It looks like we’re headed for a record number of nominations this year.”

North Islanders are encouraged to nominate the local business of their choice for the Island-wide awards.

Deadline for nomination is Dec. 13, with nomination forms available at www.businessvi.ca/events.
