How We Choose

To be recognized for a BestOttawa Choice Award, a company must have an extraordinary overall quality rating based on our own point scoring system.

The company must have excellent customer evaluations and a strong reputation across multiple platforms. Businesses that consistently respond to customers’ questions and concerns will be highly regarded. Businesses with excellent histories spanning numerous years and zero to very few complaints will score highly.

Businesses that conduct their day-to-day operations with the utmost integrity and have demonstrated a consistent trend of giving back to their local community and decreasing their carbon footprint will be recognized with a Quality Business Award. Every year, we start from scratch and re-evaluate each firm.
