MHS Awards: Centennial Business Awards
If your business is more than 100 years old, it is time to celebrate your history! Apply for a MHS Centennial Business Award.
Since our earliest days, Manitoba businesses have profoundly influenced our province's development and character. The Manitoba Historical Society is pleased to sponsor the Centennial Business Awards program:
Businesses of all types and sizes are eligible
Any business in continuous operation for at least 100 years within what is now Manitoba is eligible for recognition. Any type or size of business can participate, from small family-owned firms to large corporations. The key qualifying factor is continuous operation: name, ownership, and product changes do not disqualify an applicant. Firms merged with other firms also qualify.
Participation is free
There is no charge for businesses to apply or to participate in the program if accepted. Simply complete a one-page application form and provide copies of evidence that documents your company's age. Examples of acceptable evidence include:
Applications will be accepted between January and August. Businesses accepted into the program will be notified in the Fall and honoured at a special annual event.
We'll help you proudly show your age
Businesses accepted into the MHS Centennial Business Award program will receive:
Perhaps most importantly, your company and its employees can take pride in the enduring excellence of your firm. Your firm's longevity and continuing dedication to commerce and community demonstrate to all Manitobans the importance of our province's commercial heritage.
If you have questions about the Centennial Business Award program, or wish to submit an application form, please contact the MHS office.
