A partnership between the WestShore Chamber of Commerce and the Goldstream News Gazette, the Best of the WestShore Awards showcase the amazing organizations and favourite community places that make up the WestShore community. With over 40,500 votes cast across 40 business and 4 community categories through an entirely public voting system, 2019 showed the greatest engagement to date. Space dictates that I can only share the winners with you, but congratulations to all of the winners and the finalists – just getting voted into the top 3 is no small feat!
