Congratulations to you all on achieving these awards. They are well deserved for all your hard work and dedication to make the Town of Vermilion and better place to work and live. Thank you for all you do!

October 19-23, 2015

We encourage you, as you go about your daily routines, to think of nominating the businesses that you are visiting for an award.  These awards are handed out in October, and show just how much we appreciate our Vermilion and Area Businesses.  So think outside the box:  is your hairdresser an “Employee of the Year”? was the caterer at the wedding you attended a “Business of the Year”? who represents the “Spirit of Vermilion” to you?

Thank you to our event sponsors:

What is Small Business Week?

Small Business Week is a national celebration of Canadian entrepreneurs and their contribution to Canada’s economy. The Chambers throughout Alberta have been organizing Small Business Week activities for 33 years.  It takes place every year during the third full week of October. Events held during the week bring together entrepreneurs—and prospective entrepreneurs—at conferences, workshops, luncheons and awards dinners around Alberta.  One of the goals is to provide them with opportunities to learn, network, share ideas and socialize with their peers.  The other goal is to recognize those businesses that are outstanding in their fields.

Vermilion Small Business Week 

This year the Vermilion & District Chamber of Commerce is hosting a Kickoff Breakfast October 20, 2015 at the School of Hope and an Awards Gala October 22, 2015 at the Vermilion Seniors Centre. We have great entertainment booked for the Gala, Corey PoirierCorey http://www.coreypoirier.com/about . Both are a great time of food and networking. The Breakfast is also a great opportunity to sit and talk with community leaders in an informal environment. The Gala is were it all comes together, it is a wonderful time to get together and show our appreciation for all the hard work the businesses in the Vermilion area do to ensure we have a great customer experience.
