    About the Business Achievement Awards

    The London Chamber of Commerce has been recognizing and celebrating high achievements in London's business community since 1984. 

    Often called the "Academy Awards" of business achievement in London, the Chamber's annual Business Achievement Awards gala showcases and celebrates some of the outstanding businesses in London. Our Annual Business Achievement Awards is the largest business awards gala of its kind in Canada. To be a finalist for an award is in itself a great accomplishment. Awards will be presented at our Awards Gala on September 27, 2023 at RBC Place London. 

    Nomination Criteria

    A business can be nominated for multiple awards, but can only compete in one category. Previous winners can be nominated in another category or in the same category after ten years. Sponsoring firms are not eligible for nomination.
