Over the last 20 years, the annual Awards of Excellence event has evolved but the reason we gather year after year remains the same - to thank all of the individuals and businesses who give back so generously to our community. It’s our past, present, and future nominees and award recipients who really make the Township of Centre Wellington an amazing place to live, work and play. The Centre Wellington Chamber of Commerce invites you to participate in our Awards of Excellence.
