The vot­ing is now open for the Or­léans Busi­ness Ex­cel­lence Awards, says ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Jamie Kwong.

Af­ter chang­ing the for­mat for the awards, last year, Kwong says quite a few new busi­nesses have joined the ranks with over 270 peo­ple nom­i­nated.

"We re­de­fined how we or­ga­nized the cat­e­gories, which worked re­ally well," said Kwong. Al­most 1,000 votes have been cast al­ready, she said. "Clearly this is a very ded­i­cated com­mu­nity the cares about their busi­nesses. We’re close knit so I feel like peo­ple know their busi­ness own­ers very well."

Res­i­dents can vote from now un­til Jan. 7 at www.or­lean­scham­ber.ca. The event will be held Jan. 30 at the Ottawa Con­fer­ence and Event Cen­tre, with the theme, this year, be­ing black & white mas­quer­ade. (C.K)
