Women in business
Women in Business Awards
Celebrating International Women’s Day, March 8th of every year, we honour past and present mentionable women who have shaped and helped us achieve women’s rights and equality throughout the decades. As we continue to strive for this, we encourage the entire community to nominate local business women and leaders for this celebration.

The Annual General Meeting is one of the most important events of the Wasaga Beach Chamber of Commerce. The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is held in June with members gathered to review accomplishments, vote and approve visions, missions, member rates, financials and the board of directors.
The Business Awards and Recognition Ceremony is held in September as a celebratory event to bring the business community together in a supportive and collaborative way. Inspirational speakers have brought great insight into the challenges the local businesses face. There are 15 categories and over 180 nominees to honour and award for their excellence.
The Holiday Special is our final Business After 5 of the year and is held in November as a social gathering and fundraiser. It is a fun and casual atmosphere which includes music, networking, games and prizes.
