The 23rd annual Business Excellence Awards Gala signifies another stepping stone in our journey towards enhancing, cultivating, and leading our industry with integrity and innovation.
This year, we were nominated for two awards:
- Business of the Year 2022
- Environmental Sustainability 2022
Congratulations to the 9 winners! It is truly inspirational to see what can be achieved through perseverance, and a common goal to enhance the Burnaby business community together.
Notable community enhancement projects in 2022 that we had the privilege of participating include:
During the summer we worked on a community project to update a tired and underutilized space in the Brentwood neighbourhood of Burnaby. It was a collaborative project organized through the Green Cities Foundation, Steamworks Brewing Co, GardenWorks, BCLNA, and our special team of volunteers at Para Space!
Over this past year we have seen local residents and businesses enjoy the picnic tables and seating area for lunches and even open-air meetings! By the time spring came around, all the pollinators were also happily buzzing about enjoying the variety of plants and nesting spaces.
We have officially opened the Pollinator Park and it is a beautiful sight to see in person. We encourage you to pop by see for yourself!
Vancouver General Hospital
In April we put together a team of volunteers who were keen to help out Vancouver General Hospital. The goal was to create more smiles through landscaping by sprucing up their therapy garden with some new plant material. There was sunshine and smiles the whole afternoon.
