Business Excellence Awards

Celebrating Delta Businesses Since 1952!

Each November, the Delta Chamber recognizes exceptional Delta businesses with the Business Excellence Awards gala. Long considered to be the premiere business event of the year, the Business Excellence Awards gala (formerly known as the "Hats Off to Excellence Awards") is a high-profile, prestigious event for Delta businesses and individuals.

Celebrating excellence, determination, and community contribution by local leaders throughout the federal electoral district of Delta (including the City of Delta & Tsawwassen First Nation) we recognize Finalists in numerous award categories including: Rising Star, Community Impact, Small Business, Medium Business, Large Business, Business of the Year & Citizen of the Year.

We are deeply grateful to our Presenting Sponsor, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority, and to the many businesses and individuals who make this event what it is each year by sponsoring, donating auction prizes, volunteering their time & talents, and by choosing to celebrate the excellence of our local business community together with us.

We look forward join us in 2024 for our 73rd annual Business Excellence Awards!
