At a glamorous gala event at Club Regent Event Centre, The Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce celebrated outstanding organizations who make Winnipeg a better city. Chosen by volunteer judges drawn from the business community, the eight 2017 Spirit of Winnipeg Award recipients embody the ambitious, innovative, caring spirit of our prairie home.
Our deep thanks to the generous sponsors - particularly BDO Canada and Fillmore Riley who are close partners with us in the event. Gratitude as well to the volunteers, Club Regent Event Centre staff and gala audience - without you, the event would not have been possible.
Lastly thank you to all the finalists. It’s true just one nominee received the award, but we hope each of them receive our deep gratitude now. Thank you, finalists, for raising the bar. Thank you for choosing to be excellent. Thank you for embodying the Spirit of Winnipeg.
Nominations for the 2018 Spirit of Winnipeg Awards will open in the fall - to enter your own organization or another that improves our community.
