Excellence in Business Award
We were surprised when Kathy from the Micro Business Development Centre walked into the Blue Canoe and announced that we were nominated for the Almaguin’s Excellence in Business Award, and even more surprised to win!
Mark and I attended the awards ceremony along with 30 other small businesses in the area. This was the first year that the Micro Business and the Almaguin News showcased such an event. It was wonderfully entertaining listening to Kathy explain the excellent qualities of each and every one of these incredible small-town businesses by slide show.
The Blue Canoe/Northern Edge was announced for Business Excellence Award in Outstanding Tourism. The crowd cheered as Mark and I went up to receive the award! Todd would have been proud :)
I was delighted to see that Mark and I made it to the front page of the Market Place (Almaguin News) today!
