Your growing business deserves to be celebrated! Here is your chance at regional recognition in Northern Ontario.

Northern Ontario Business is now accepting nominations for the 28th annual Northern Ontario Business Awards (NOBA). Over the years, NOBA has awarded more than 240 Northern Ontario companies and individuals with a Northern Ontario Business Award for their contributions to the economic wealth of Northern Ontario, as well as employing local citizens.


In a fiercely competitive market, winning an NOBA sets a company apart as a leader. Submit a nomination for either yourself, or someone you know. NOBA winners are profiled in a video documentary, and a special high-gloss magazine that is distributed at the event and to more than 49,000 business leaders across the region.

New this year, you can now nominate online at www.noba.ca. The deadline for submissions is Monday, May 12, 2014. Self-nominations are encouraged.

Nominations are being accepted in the following categories:
-Company of the Year (1-15 Employees)
-Entrepreneurial Community of the Year
-Company of the Year (16-50 Employees)
-First Nations Business Award of Excellence
-Company of the Year (51+ Employees)
-Innovation
-Entrepreneur of the Year
-Export
-Young Entrepreneur of the Year

“The Northern Ontario Business Awards are an excellent opportunity to showcase the business successes and entrepreneurial spirit in our northern communities,” said Debbie Amaroso, Mayor, Sault Ste. Marie.

“If you know of a business or individual who has contributed to Northern Ontario’s diverse and innovative business economy, I encourage you to submit a nomination form and join us for the celebrations.”

“NOBA celebrates everything that is courageous, challenging and rewarding about doing business in Northern Ontario,” said Patricia Mills, Publisher, Northern Ontario Business.

“It is a gathering place for the north's most influential leaders and a jumping off point for many to form partnerships, find mentors and look for new opportunities."

The awards gala is widely regarded as Northern Ontario’s largest gathering of movers and shakers — the perfect venue for 500-plus delegates to network and connect business-to-business.

This year’s gala returns to Sault Ste. Marie on Sept. 25, 2014. Register online at www.noba.ca.
