SABEW Canada announces Best in Business finalists

The Canadian chapter of the Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing announced the finalists for its 10th annual Best in Business Awards competition, recognizing outstanding Canadian business reporting published and produced in 2023.

This year, the BIB Canada Awards received close to 200 entries, just shy of the record number received last year.

These awards would not be possible without the incredible work of business journalists at organizations large and small across the country, to all who have taken the time to submit articles, podcast and multimedia output for consideration, and, of course, our esteemed volunteer judges.

The SABEW BIB Canada 2023 winners will be announced on Monday, June 24. The venue is The Pilot in Toronto, handily located near Yonge/Bloor subway station, with paid parking available nearby. Click here to purchase a ticket.
