Jim Burton: Community Builder Volunteer of the Year Award

The St. John’s Board of Trade have recognized some of the city’s most outstanding entrepreneurs at the 22nd annual Business Excellence Awards.

“These awards recognize the achievements of private sector business and acknowledge the significant contributions members are making to our community, and our province,” says Sharon Horan, Chair of the St. John’s Board of Trade. “I congratulate all of this year’s award recipients and wish them many more years of continued success.”

The Business Excellence Awards represent overall achievement across several categories. The recipients have distinguished themselves as achievers at the very highest level during this business year.

The Community Builder Volunteer award recognizes an individual who is committed and volunteers in the community; one who is seen as a role model not only in the community but as well to their organization and an individual who has made a difference from these contributions.

Jim Burton has volunteered countless hours with numerous charities including the Canadian Cancer Society, the provincial Brain Injury Association, the Janeway Children’s Hospital Foundation, Rotary and is the force behind Hope Air.
