Frozen Globe Award, Northwest Territories Entrepreneur of the Year
The top Northwest Territories business award was presented to Canoe North Adventures in Whitehorse Yukon, at the Annual Frozen Globe Business Awards Banquet. The award recognizes excellence not just in the tourism industry but across the entire business establishment. This recognition left us weak-in-the-knees, stunned and basically speechless! Glad that Lin made the journey to Whitehorse to attend the banquet!
Frozen Globe Award, Pan-Territorial Northern Entrepreneur of the Year
Just when our breathing got back to normal after receiving the NWT Frozen Globe Award, Canoe North Adventures won the top northern business award across Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut! We were beyond grateful and proud. Humbled, Lin gave her thank-you once again before smiling and heading straight for the champagne bucket!
