Home Leaders


Recognizing the owners, CEOs and presidents of Edmonton companies who contribute in an outstanding way to our vibrant and growing city. Business in Edmonton Leaders stand out in our community through their personal integrity, values, business initiatives, community involvement, innovation and philanthropy.

Each year, company leaders demonstrating these qualities are nominated for the Business in Edmonton Leaders program. Throughout the process, we work with the nominees to help tell their story in the most complete manner possible. All nominees are evaluated by an independent panel of judges, who will select the top 20 for the 2024 Leaders Awards program.

One evening in November, 400-plus individuals from Edmonton’s business community will come together to recognize and celebrate the great work done by our Leaders. The business formal event will take place at a venue in Edmonton with a VIP Reception
(for the Leaders and a guest as well as event partners) followed by a meal, speakers and the awards presentation.

With some 200 alumni among us, this will be our 11th year
honouring business excellence in Edmonton.

Nominations for the 2024 Leaders Awards
Open in January 2024!

Here’s what one of our Leader’s winners had to say about the 2023 glala:

“I wanted to reach out personally and say that both Kaitlyn and I had a really great time at the awards gala last night, thank you so much for having us and making the night special!

I also wanted to mention that we genuinely appreciated the finer details of the whole evening; those special touches made the event truly meaningful while connecting everyone in the room. From the boutonnieres, the personal stories and words of the judges and sponsors, to all the extra elements recognizing the recipients. I think we all feel the pressure of being pulled in so many different directions these days, and it’s that added effort that reminds us of the amazing community that surrounds us. 

Thank you again and please share our gratitude to all those involved in the evening and efforts leading up to the awards – we were honoured to be part of it.}
