“Partnering with the Chamber to celebrate the exceptional success stories in our region is an ideal way to inspire future business leaders and innovative entrepreneurs,” RBC business financial services vice-president Jack Leung said in a statement.

The Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce was founded over 150 years ago to establish the Island’s southern tip as a gold mining centre and has since worked to develop and support a diverse and resilient business community.

“The story of the chamber is the story of Greater Victoria in so many ways, and it is time to honour all of the individuals who helped establish and grow business in our region,” board chair John Wilson said.
