The Fernie Chamber of Commerce would like to congratulate the winners of the 2020 Virtual Fernie Business Excellence Awards. The awards gala was held virtually on the evening of Friday 23 October.

The Fernie Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the three finalists in each category of the 2020 Virtual Fernie Business Excellence Awards.
