Nominations are now open for Greater Victoria Business Awards.

The annual event, held by the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce, celebrates the success of businesses in the region.

The awards recognize all types of businesses as well as individuals and include categories from business leadership and innovation to young entrepreneur and sustainable business practices.

In addition, the lifetime achievement award recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to the business community over the last 35 years. Recent recipients include community leaders Keith Dagg and Bob Skene.

The awards gala is a sell-out event every year. This year’s awards gala will be held in May with tickets going on sale in April.
