London, ON, Canada/Toronto, Ontario, Canada – October 17, 2018 –Worldwide leader in aviation management software, WinAir, is honoured to announce that the company has been shortlisted as a finalist for the Ontario Business Achievement Awards’ (OBAA) SME Business Excellence Award. The award acknowledges a small or medium-sized enterprise that exemplifies forward-thinking in all aspects of their business. This year marks the first year that the SME Business Excellence award will be presented. On November 21st, 2018, WinAir team members will attend the OBAA gala celebration at the Liberty Grand Entertainment Complex in the heart of downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
The OBAA are the most recognized industry gala in the province that has a singular focus on business success. These awards celebrate the innovations and achievements of businesses from a variety of industry sectors that are located in the province of Ontario. In order to qualify for an award, companies must be nominated and are then required to submit a comprehensive application package. After an extensive review process, the OBAA committee whittles down the list of nominees to two companies per category. The OBAA have a longstanding tradition for highlighting business achievements in Ontario, with their first event taking place in 1982. Since that time, the event has grown tremendously, both in terms of size and overall prestige. This year, the organization received over 350 OBAA nominations.
This year’s business awards celebration will mark the 36th anniversary of the event, which is presented by the Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC). “We are delighted to have WinAir recognized by the Ontario Chamber of Commerce as a finalist for the Ontario Business Achievement Award for SME Business Excellence,” says WinAir Managing Director, Kyle Vergeer. “While we are a global company, we pride ourselves on the fact that we are owned and operated in Ontario and remain on the cusp of technological advancements. Our entire team looks forward to the awards ceremony in November.”

It operates with a mission to support economic growth and is committed to improving competitiveness for Ontario businesses within the province, across Canada, and on the international stage.
WinAir’s recognition as a finalist for the OBAA for SME Business Excellence tops off another stellar year for the company, who back in March, were named medium-sized Business of the Year by the London Chamber of Commerce.
