Editorial: Nominations open for first-ever NOTL's Choice Awards at

There’s a lot to appreciate in Niagara-on-the-Lake — so much that it’s hard to keep track of all that’s going on here. We know this well, as a newspaper with its finger on the pulse of the community.

But just saying that isn’t enough.

We could write 10 editorials about how great this town is, how many fantastic local businesses there are to support, how so many of those businesses give back so much to our community, and support The Lake Report as well.

But even 100 editorials simply wouldn’t encapsulate the feeling we have as NOTLers, and the loyalty to our favourite spots.

So, in keeping with trying to find ways to give back to NOTL, we are launching the first-ever NOTL’s Choice Awards.

The Lake Report is proud to inaugurate the NOTL’s Choice Awards, so our readers, the residents of our town, can speak their minds about the NOTL shops and businesses, and the entrepreneurs who make them special.

We’ve left it to NOTL residents to nominate their favourite businesses, organizations and individuals, and we encourage people to nominate as many businesses as they would like.

After the nomination process, we’ll launch the contest, where NOTLers can vote on their favourite place, in a wide variety of categories.

To nominate a business, organization or professional individual, please visit and go to the nominations page. From there you will be linked to our online survey, which can be taken as many times as needed to get all of your favourites in the running.

Don’t wait to submit — nominations close Jan. 30, 2020.
