The Board is proud to honour members of the Toronto region business community who are trailblazers demonstrating exceptional growth, leadership and innovation through our 8th Annual Business Excellence  Awards (BEAs).

Each year, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and entrepreneurs from every sector are nominated by their peers in seven award categories reflecting the Board’s mission to position the Toronto region as a global champion. The winners are decided by a committee of notable business leaders. The region’s business community convenes at an awards gala for an evening of networking and celebrating the nominees and winners.

The BEAs are a prestigious way for emerging and established companies to gain recognition in the region’s business community and the gala is an outstanding opportunity to meet and connect with leaders and rising entrepreneurs.
