MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 21, 2011) - The Canadian Business Journal is proud to announce the nominations are open for the 2011 Company of the Year awards.

This year's distinguished judging panel will include Arlene Dickinson, CEO of Venture Communications and co-star of CBC's Gemini award-winning Dragons' Den, and Michel Barsalou, Executive Vice President, Communications and Services at the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.

CBJ Company of the Year award

In its inaugural year, the 2010 CBJ Company of the Year Award recognized all that is great about Canadian businesses. As the country's leading online B2B magazine, the CBJ publishes stories every month about the "best in class" in Canadian business. This competition capitalizes on what the CBJ team already knows—that Canada's leading corporations in the fields of technology, resources, healthcare, and a host of other industries, are among the best in the world.

Now, it's time to honour those leaders and innovators. Our goal: to find Canada's number one business, and share that company's successes with the rest of Canada and the world. Nominations will be open until December 22, with the winner announced in January.
