The Barrie Chamber of Commerce and the City of Barrie were honoured to announce the 2021 Barrie Business Awards recipients during a virtual awards ceremony that streamed live on YouTube Tuesday, November 22, 2021. The Barrie Business Awards are a longstanding recognition program that celebrates the contribution of local businesses to the continued growth and success of our community.

These awards are not just about a company’s financial success, they are intended to acknowledge a set of values, that recognizes social responsibility, entrepreneurial spirit, risk taking, ideas, and innovation in our community – all of which contribute to a stronger local economy, the importance of which has been emphasized even more in these past 18 months. On behalf of the Chamber Board, staff and our members we congratulate all of our nominees. To be a finalist for any category is in itself a great accomplishment.

With any virtual show, quality is key, and we were very pleased to be working with Multi-Tech Audio Visual to ensure that it ran smoothly. Iain Moggach of Theatre By The Bay hosted again, elevating the entertainment value. Video elements were provided by, Elliott Impact Media, and Hollinshead Media, ensuring that our finalists and winners were highlighted in the best way possible.

We are very grateful to our incredible sponsors. Their continued support of this awards program enabled us to move forward with planning, while never losing focus on the end goal: celebrating these high-caliber business leaders that are proud to call Barrie home. #whybarrie
