POSTPONED until a later date. 

Due to the recent Provincial update in response to COVID-19 moving Halton Region into the Red – Control zone, we are sad to announce that we will be postponing our 2020 Distinguished Entrepreneur Event, originally scheduled for November 26th.

Honouring Kenna Danyliw and her accomplishments in her industry and our community is of utmost importance to the Burlington Chamber of Commerce and deserves the attention of the entire business community. In order to do proper justice to the profile of this award and our 2020 Recipient, this event will be reimagined in late Spring 2021 and will dovetail this celebration with our prestigious Business Excellence Awards Gala. Further details will be announced in 2021.
