MRC PONTIAC AND MUNCIPALITY OF PONTIAC – There are only two weeks left to cast your vote in the 2020 Readers’ Choice Awards; the deadline is August 26.
This is the Pontiac Journal’s eighth year highlighting the best businesses across the MRC and the Municipality of Pontiac. There are 32 categories to choose from:  the familiar categories – Best Food and Restaurants, Best professionals, Best Stores – were expanded this year to include some businesses not recognized before: Best Local Entertainment, Best Riding Stable, and Best Wedding-Related Services, for example.
We’ve also added categories to honour business people who have gone above and beyond during the Covid-19 pandemic. Who devised the most creative service
during this difficult time, getting you the products you needed? Who offered the best take-out food, and who gave the best overall community service to the citizens of the Pontiac?  You decide!
This is Pontiac’s opportunity to recognize our innovative and dedicated businesses, to honour those who are going beyond their usual great service – and without
forgetting businesses who, in the past 12 months, continued their trademark dedication to their customers. Especially at this time, when Covid-19 has made running a  business even more difficult, these hard working people need your support by shopping locally and recognizing their efforts.
The ballot on page 9 lists all the categories; your job is simple: make your choices and mail it to us. Or, go online to where there’s a link at the top right; fill in your choices and click ‘submit’.
It’s time to cast your ballot, and honour as many businesses as you can….in these tough times, they need your positive support.
Don’t miss out! Make your vote count! Plus, you could win a $100 VISA
gift card for simply casting your vote and nominating your favourites! Go to and cast your vote
