Gore Mutual has received an award for business excellence for its invaluable contributions to the city of Cambridge, Ontario – the city the insurance company is based in.
The insurer was awarded the Chairs Award during the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce’s 2019 Business Excellence Awards.

“The awards are our way of recognizing how much our business leaders do for this region,” said Cambridge Chamber of Commerce president and CEO Greg Durocher. “The calibre of our business community talent is something we should all be very proud of and celebrate.”
The Chairs Award was the final prize presented during the Business Excellence Awards event.
