On behalf of its Ontario Made program, Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME) announced the finalists for the second annual Ontario Made Awards. Finalists for these awards are Ontario manufacturers and retailers that help consumers make informed decisions in increasing the sale and awareness of Ontario-made products, including two York Region-based companies.
From December 6, 2022, until January 8, 2023, consumers made their voice heard by voting for their favourite manufacturer and retailer in each category. Over 17,000 votes were cast to determine the 12 finalists across four award categories. We’re proud to share these two York Region-based companies that made it to the finals!
