Message from the Mayor of Sault Ste. Marie

MayorOn behalf of the City Council and the Community of Sault Ste. Marie, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all participants and delegates to the Northern Ontario Business Awards (NOBA). Congratulations to this year's nominees; it is a pleasure to host the 2014 NOB Awards in Sault Ste. Marie.

We will be celebrating "28 Years of Business Excellence" from across Northern Ontario by showcasing the entrepreneurial spirit of Northerners, and providing opportunities to network and honor Northerners who have demonstrated vision, entrepreneurship, commitment, creativity, leadership and celebrate their successes. Sault Ste. Marie is very proud to host these award celebrations and I'm confident that our scenic, friendly, hospitable and "Naturally Gifted" community will open their doors to ensure your stay in Sault Ste. Marie will be memorable, pleasant and rewarding.

We would also like to acknowledge and send a special thank you to those involved in coordinating these awards. We extend gratitude to the organizers (staff and volunteers), the judges and sponsors for their efforts in becoming involved and hosting these Awards. It is always a pleasure to witness the enthusiasm of all businesses that have supported, and continue to support, the NOBA Awards over the past 28 years. Thank you to those taking the time to submit nominations, as recognition and support from others is an integral part to having a successful and healthy business community.

I look forward to meeting you at the Awards!
