Nominations close Monday afternoon for the Kapuskasing and District Chamber of Commerce Business of the year Awards. Chamber manager Donna Todd says any business can be nominated along the Highway 11 corridor from Opasatika to Fauquier. She adds that this year there are several new awards including Community Builder.
“A lot of these businesses have done plenty during the last 2 ½ years since our last awards, especially with regards to COVID-19,” she said. “Some of these businesses have struggled and a lot have come to the plate. They worked really hard to maintain access to their business and provide the services we need in our area.”
Todd says another new one recognizes focuses on having an online presence.

The awards gala is set for late September.
