Show your love for local businesses

Now more than ever we need to support our local small businesses. We are fortunate to have hundreds of small businesses in Dufferin County. While Covid 19 closures have affected us all in some way, entrepreneurs have once again shown their courage and ability to adapt.
Small business and local restaurants fill a void in our community. With them, our consumer choices become more broad and eclectic. Small business directly supports local jobs, supply chains and the community. It is absolutely critical we support small business today. We are proud to celebrate Small Business Week Oct 18-24 with our 2020 Business Excellence Awards on Oct 21/20. This year we have 8 award categories with over 50 nominees. Join us in a new drive-in format, ideal for social distancing.
