Smithers District Chamber of Commerce

2020 Community & Business Awards Winners Photo Gallery

January 28, 2021

In 2020 it was even more important than ever to take the time to celebrate the very best in Smithers' business leaders - the leaders who have continued to support the community despite facing so much uncertainty. The Community and Business Awards have always encouraged and inspired businesses to do their best, and 2020 was no exception.

We all appreciate that 2020 was a year like no other in this century. Dealing with a global pandemic has not been easy for anyone. Despite the challenges, the Smithers District Chamber of Commence believed it was important to recognize those who have contributed positively to our economy and community.

As with so many ceremonies and events this past year, it was necessary to shift the awards ceremony to virtual via Zoom and Facebook Live. The ceremony was held on November 25, 2020. View the award winners on our Chamber's website: PHOTO GALLERY 


I think the future of Smithers’ business community is bright. There’s a new generation of people starting out and taking over old businesses in the community, supplying new ideas and breathing life into this town. The people here are friendly and support each other, but I think that the best thing about our town is the diversity of people here.
