The Mayor’s Business Improvement Zone (BIZ) Awards recognize those who have made significant contributions to promote economic development in their local Business Improvement Zone.

Awards are presented for exemplary work that contribute to local Business Improvement Zones and make Winnipeg’s neighbourhoods and our city a better place to live, work and do business. Awards are presented for significant contributions in one or more of the following categories: community program delivery, “place making” (beautification and streetscape enhancements), special events, marketing, promotion and safety initiatives.
