The Antigonish Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the nominees for the Antigonish Business Awards.

The Antigonish Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that it has begun a Member Awareness Program with 989XFM, Nothing But Hits. Once per month, a Chamber member will be chosen at random. That member will be the sponsor of one weather update per day during that calendar month.
