Welcome to the EDCO Awards of Excellence!

The EDCO Awards of Excellence is a well-established program recognizing oustanding economic development initiatives and individuals in the Province of Ontario. 

Recipients of the EDCO Awards of Excellence are viewed as leaders in economic development and often asked to present their efforts and accomplishments at speaking engagements including the EDCO Conference and Showcase.

All entrants receive feedback from expert judges on their entries. Winners in each category are eligible to receive the Lieutenant-Governors' Best of Show Award for outstanding effort in economic development. Past award winners have found the recognition very useful within their own communities.


Details for the 2020 EDCO Awards of Excellence program will be announced soon. Please check back as September approaches.
