Holy smokes, Haliburton: two local businesses are nominated for a big provincial business award and we are one of them!
Every year for the past 25 years, Community Futures Ontario has held this competition. Nominations pour in from the 61 development corporations across the province for three awards.
We are so proud to be standing alongside The Coalition of Haliburton Property Owners Associations, which is nominated for the “Innovation and Community Economic Development” award. We’re up for “Entrepreneur of the Year”.
In addition to being nominees in our respective categories, we are also eligible to receive the Member’s Choice Award, should we receive the most votes. So please vote!
