Every year, our organization turns the spotlight on the businesses that help present and represent our province to the country and the world. Today, the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce (MCC) is pleased to announce the names of the companies that have made an impact and are nominated for the 2015 MBiz Awards.

Presented by Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries, the MBiz Awards Gala is MCC’s premier business  event. Established in 1983 to recognize and celebrate outstanding businesses and individual  achievements by the Manitoba business community, each year seven awards are given to businesses and/or individuals who contribute to Manitoba’s employment; have a successful  employee relations department; have seen sustainable growth; and been involved in the province’s community development. Additional consideration is given to nominees demonstrating special achievements for overcoming unique obstacles.

“This year’s list of nominees build on our belief that Manitoba has a strong, diverse and ever-growing business community,” said Chamber President and CEO Chuck Davidson. “The men and women who make up our judging committee faced a difficult task narrowing the pool to the nominees announced today. These final 15 nominees represent the best of Manitoba in 2015 and are all deserving of this distinction.”
