We are in unprecedented times, with the world being turned upside down overnight. Businesses have been forced to rethink their operations, neighbours are supporting each other, and the Oakville community is coming together to overcome this pandemic.
In times of crisis, it can be hard to ﬁnd a silver lining but during the past few months there have been many and it is time to celebrate those moments of resiliency.
The Oakville Chamber is thrilled to announce the #StrongerTogether Business Resiliency Awards presented by BDC to honour Oakville’s small businesses that have shown strength and resiliency during the COVID-19 lockdown and reopening.
What does it mean to be a resilient business?
Resilient businesses demonstrate the ability to rapidly adapt and respond to business disruptions, safeguard people and assets, while maintaining continuous business operations.
Sharing #StrongerTogether Business Resiliency Stories
Small businesses in Oakville who have shown innovation, compassion, and determination during COVID-19 are encouraged to apply for the #StrongerTogether Business Reseiliency Awards.
Five businesses will be selected by a volunteer committee, consisting of Oakville Chamber members and award partners. The award recipients will each receive a professional video highlighting their story and how their business remained resilient during the COVID-19 pandemic. These videos will premiere during BDC Small Business Week in October 2020 on the Oakville Chamber’s communication channels.
Nominations will be accepted until 12:00 pm on Friday, September 25th.
