The judging panel made some some very difficult decisions, and the Chamber was pleased to present their 2019 Fernie Business Excellence Awards to the winners. Nominations for the 2019 Fernie Business Excellence Awards closed on Friday 13 September 2019 with 188 individual nominations made. The Fernie Chamber of Commerce contacted the 78 nominees with an award application form. The form asks the business questions specific to the award they have been nominated for. For example, outstanding customer service award asks businesses to tell the judges how they provide great service and to include references to online review forums.

Congratulation to all those businesses and individuals involved in the awards. Fernie is proud of everyone involved.
