Initiated by the Greater Barrie Chamber of Commerce and the City of Barrie in 2003, the Barrie Business Awards program recognizes the contribution of local businesses to the continued growth and success of our community. Each year the program begins with a call for nominations in the spring, nominee profiles are collected throughout the summer, the panel of judges are assembled online, and finalists are announced in the fall. The awards are presented in November, during a gala that has come to be known as Barrie’s premier business networking black tie event. 

Please join us in congratulating our winners of the 2022 Barrie Business Awards.
