What are the Readers' Choice Awards?

The Readers’ Choice Award program is an annual interactive program that invites the local community to nominate and vote for their favourite local business and/or professional. The community decides winners as their favourites in specific categories.

How the program works

There are three stages that total a 20 week duration for each community Readers’ Choice Awards program. The community decides the nominations and votes for the winners in specific categories.


The program “Opens” with the nomination stage. People can go to their local Readers’ Choice Awards site and they can nominate a businesses or professional service provider of their choice in specific categories. People are encouraged to nominate all of your favourite businesses along with your favourite categories.


Once all of the nominations have been collected. The top nominees for each category are set up for the voting stage. The voting stage “Opens” with these nominees and you have the ability to go to your local Readers’ Choice Awards site and “Vote” for your favourite business. The top businesses in each category will be Awarded the Readers’ Choice Winners.


The Readers’ Choice Winners are decided by the total amount of votes received for each business per category. The ranking goes as follows: (1) Diamond (2) Platinum (3) Gold. The Winners will be published online on the Readers’ Choice Site and also in the local print publication (where available).
