After a long rigorous wait our winners for the 2022 Business Awards have been announced!

The Medicine Hat & District Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the winners of the 2022 Chamber of Commerce Business Awards. The annual awards were held on Friday, October 14th at the Esplanade with a crowd of nearly 300 people in attendance. There were a total of 115 nominations in 14 categories with one business taking home the prized award, the Chamber of Commerce Award of Excellence.

“A New Era of Roaring Success” was chosen as this year’s theme to signify the ‘Roaring 20’s’ of this century. Similarly, to the 1920’s, our 2020’s are the beginning of a united force in supporting and strengthening our local economic prosperity. As we navigate the ‘Roaring 20’s’ of this century we celebrate our businesses, past and present, that have weathered the challenges and have emerged with new ideas, innovative practices, and even stronger connections.
