Naikoon wins sustainability award!

Put on by the North Vancouver Chamber, the 22nd annual Business Excellence Awards recognizes the best North Vancouver businesses in service, innovation, sustainability, and the best young entrepreneurs, best employers and business of the year in the North Vancouver area.

The 22nd annual Business Excellence Awards & Gala

Every Year, the North Vancouver Chamber organizes a beautiful Awards Gala at the Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier which our president, Joe and a few of the Naikoon Leadership group attended.

One of our favourite parts about the awards is getting to celebrate the hard work of our team and other businesses in the North Vancouver Area. The Gala allowed us to catch up with our fellow North Vancouver business owners and learning more about the many exciting things North Vancouver businesses do. We also enjoyed sharing information about some of our most exciting projects, including the first CHBA Net Zero certified home in Metro Vancouver we just completed!

We then sat down for a fabulous dinner, followed by the ceremony where all the finalists in all categories were introduced with some wonderful videos made by the talented student teams of the Capilano University School of Motion Picture Arts.

Check out the video about Naikoon! Many thanks to Dyson Bissonnette-Licorish, Roberto Cando, Grace Hardman, Rachel Kwan, James Thornley-Hall and Nicole Watson!
