The Winnipeg Community Choice Awards need your votes!

After a nine-week nomination period, the Winnipeg Community Choice Awards have been whittled down to the top 10 from each category.

Everyone has that favourite go-to place, whether it's a hairstylist where the conversation is great, an auto repair shop that gives you the straight goods and exceptional service or a simple, cozy place to grab a great coffee.

Once again, we're asking you to share those places with others by voting for your favourites! After all, they deserve some recognition.

“We created the Community Choice program to allow Winnipeggers to speak to each other and find hidden gems. We weren’t sure what to expect last year, but the response was incredible and I can’t wait for this year’s results," said Steve Shrout, VP of Sales for Metro English Canada.

You can participate by voting for Metro Winnipeg Community Choice Awards. There's nothing better than word of mouth to help give a boost to some of your favourite Winnipeg businesses.

The Metro Community Choice Awards covered 92 categories in 2016, with more than 4,700 nominated businesses, so readers will not only see Winnipeg companies in the spotlight, but great recommendations are at their fingertips if they're looking for something in particular to suit their needs. Last year, more than 11,900 votes were cast!
Metro will bring you the results of our reader-driven awards in special editions scheduled for later in 2017.

You nominated your favourite Winnipeggers. Now it’s time to vote! You can cast your votes at MetroCommunityChoice.com until July 4. Time to support your local businesses and get clicking! Final winners will be announced Aug. 29.
