Award Nominees Revealed and Voting Begins!

Award Nominees Revealed & Voting Begins!

We are delighted to announce the 2017 nominees for the Animal Welfare is Everyone’s Business Retail Award to be presented at the Western Canadian Pet Industry Trade Show.   It was wonderful to see the submissions come in over the last few weeks, knowing there would be so much to brag about leading up to the show. Retailers in B.C., Alberta and Manitoba were nominated by manufacturers and distributors. They were selected for their efforts in the pursuit of improving animal well-being through the promotion of pet care education, responsible pet ownership and  overall community involvement.   Successful nominees were assessed using a points system based on the award criteria.

Online Voting begins Tuesday and will run from May 9th to May 23rd.  Voting is open to PIJAC Canada members*, pre-registered visitors and exhibitors of the Western Canadian Pet Industry Trade Show.  “One of the great things about this venture is that the candidates will be voted on by their contemporaries.  People who understand exactly how hard they work to serve the community.“, says Louis McCann, President of PIJAC Canada.

We are extremely proud to introduce the top 5 nominees for 2017:


Congratulations to all the nominees for outstanding service in their communities. The nomination process for awards given at the ExpoZoo and National Pet Industry Trade shows will begin in the summer.

The Western winner will be announced at the Full House Gala & Fundraiser during the Western show the evening of Sunday, June 4th in Calgary, Alberta.

*Voting is available in English for this award.
