Discover the categories and prizes for the Tales of Triumph Contest 

There are three categories, each with a prize worth up to $20,000. You can apply to only one category – whichever one best fits your business!

Categories

Doing Good

We’re recognizing businesses who know that doing good is good for business. These businesses have gone above and beyond in their focus on the good. These businesses pride themselves on supporting others, making communities stronger and investing in a better Canada.

Marketing Magic

These businesses are investing in marketing to strengthen and support their business’ growth now, and into the future. Be it a first campaign, a new focus on social or their business going viral, they are growing their voice, awareness and presence.

Rising Stars

We want to recognize businesses that have launched over the past two years and have gone from 0 to 100 in the blink of an eye – be it an online business, a bricks and mortar location, or anything in between. They’ve found their groove and are carving out a place for themselves in the small business community.
