The award recognizes a long-time entrepreneur who has made a significant impact on the economy, and whose success is an inspiration for other women in business. The Entrepreneurial Excellence Award is sponsored by RBC - Royal Bank. “Winning this award is an honour and I am very humbled by it,” says Tremblett-Di Nillo. “I know many of the people that have received this award and they are all amazing women.” Tremblett-Di Nillo was one of nine women business owners honoured at the 2017 Entrepreneur of the Year Awards.

This evening’s winners are helping create a stronger and more diverse business landscape in this province and we are happy to celebrate them and their contributions.”
