Cape Bre­ton Part­ner­ship seeks award nom­i­na­tions

Cape Breton Post - - Cape Breton - BY CAPE BRE­TON POST STAFF

The Cape Bre­ton Part­ner­ship is look­ing for Eco­nomic Im­pact Award nom­i­na­tions of lo­cal busi­ness lead­ers who have made a sub­stan­tial in­flu­ence or con­tri­bu­tions to Cape Bre­ton.

The part­ner­ship will host the fourth edi­tion of the awards at its an­nual In­vestor Sum­mit gala din­ner on Oct. 5 at the Keltic Lodge.

The Eco­nomic Im­pact Awards hon­our in­di­vid­u­als and or­ga­ni­za­tions from mul­ti­ple in­dus­tries for their out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tions to the econ­omy. Award win­ners will be cho­sen based on sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to the Cape Bre­ton econ­omy through in­no­va­tion, en­trepreneur­ship and new in­vest­ments.

The se­lec­tion com­mit­tee’s de­ci­sion will also take into con­sid­er­a­tion the nom­i­nee’s com­mit­ment to the re­gion and the work they have ac­com­plished that has had a pos­i­tive im­pact on the econ­omy dur­ing the past year.

“Im­pact Award win­ners will be hon­oured for not only their demon­strated ef­forts to grow Cape Bre­ton’s long-term sus­tain­abil­ity, but also for their sup­port or di­rect in­volve­ment in eco­nomic de­velop ac­tiv­i­ties,” Keith Mac­Don­ald, pres­i­dent and CEO of the Cape Bre­ton Part­ner­ship, said in a news re­lease.

Among those pre­vi­ously rec­og­nized are An­nette Ver­schuren, Dan Christ­mas, Zut­phen Con­trac­tors and Celtic Colours In­ter­na­tional Mu­sic Fes­ti­val.

Nom­i­na­tion forms may be com­pleted on­line or down­loaded from the Cape Bre­ton Part­ner­ship’s in­vestor sum­mit web­site. Dig­i­tal sub­mis­sions of the nom­i­na­tion form may be sent by email to info@cape­bre­ton­part­ner­ship.com. The dead­line for nom­i­na­tions is Aug. 25 at 4 p.m. Win­ners will be an­nounced close to the date of the sum­mit, which brings to­gether more than busi­ness, com­mu­nity, and gov­ern­ment rep­re­sen­ta­tives from across Nova Sco­tia.
