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.

“We shouldn’t be surprised at the level of interest and quality of nominations for these awards,” says Business Examiner Victoria Publisher Mark MacDonald. “Each year they’re outstanding. But this year, there seems to be a special, extra level at which the companies nominated are operating.”

“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.

The event is coordinated by Invest Northwest Publishing Ltd., which publishes Business Examiner Victoria and Business Examiner Vancouver Island newspapers.
