Global Advantage Business Awards celebrate business leadership, innovation in Guelph

Guelph, Ont., December 9, 2016 – The Guelph Wellington Local Immigration Partnership (GWLIP) is accepting nominations for the newly created Global Advantage Business Awards.

Individuals and businesses of any size or industry have until January 31, 2017 to submit a nomination for two awards: Immigrant Inclusion in the Workplace Award and Immigrant Entrepreneur Success Award.

“These awards celebrate the incredible contributions that immigrants make to the local economy through entrepreneurship, and the commitments local businesses are making through innovative solutions in the workforce,” says Ella Henderson, project specialist with the GWLIP.

She adds, “No other awards exist locally to shine a light on these issues. We’re looking forward to raising the profile of the contributions made by immigrants and companies in the development and growth of our local labour force and economy.”

All nominees will be recognized at the Global Advantage Business Awards at a breakfast event in March.
