Burnaby Business Excellence Awards
The Burnaby Business Excellence Awards is an award initiative of the Burnaby Board of Trade and the City of Burnaby which honours and celebrates businesses, entrepreneurs and not-for-profit organizations for their contributions to the local economy and community.
Now in its 24th year, the BBEAs represent the highest business honour in Burnaby and the BBEA events, culminating in the annual awards gala, are the top business events in the city.
As part of the BBEA program, each year a new business is named to the Burnaby Business Hall of Fame — an exclusive group of top Burnaby businesses which have demonstrated many years of continued success, community involvement, and business leadership.
