What is CommunityVotes?

Our mission is to provide each community (city, town or association), a place where its members can recognize the outstanding businesses and services that make our lives that much better each day.

CommunityVotes has provided a platform for millions of people to nominate and vote for anything from their favourite place to dine on the weekend, the friendly mechanic who they trust when they are in a bind, or the realtor who helped them move into their perfect home in the right neighbourhood.

Community-driven recognition of local businesses and services provide key insights that can help you make the most of your important purchases and save you time finding the trusted business to get the job done right.

With each nomination and vote, you help make your community a better and more friendly place to live.
