Guidelines and Instructions

The 2023 Best Ottawa Business Awards is open to companies and not-for-profit organizations with operations in Ottawa, Eastern Ontario or Gatineau. The Ottawa Board of Trade and Ottawa Business Journal seek to recognize companies and organizations that are financially successful, innovative, ethical and demonstrate good business practices, specifically when it comes to equity and sustainability.

Entries should be fact-based, provide good business context and avoid exaggerated claims.

Recipient companies will benefit from significant exposure and prestige. Recipients will be asked to co-operate with our event planners in compiling information for the awards gala, such as video, photography and text.

Recipient companies are required to attend the gala and generally support the gala in their marketing. This support ensures the awards program remains viable.
