Buckland Receives Impact Award

We are proud to share that Buckland has received the Circle of Excellence Impact Award!

It was a wonderful evening celebrating excellence in the community and especially inspiring to see so many women owned and led organizations nominated. It was incredible to hear so many stories of resilience as the nominees reflected on the challenges faced over the last two years.

Although Buckland now has offices in Canada, the US and Mexico and serves clients across the world, it brings Buckland tremendous pride to be headquartered in a strong community like St. Thomas after nearly 8 decades in business.

The annual Impact Awards are a celebration of businesses, organizations and individuals who excel in our community.

Circle of Excellence — Buckland Custom Brokers, Elgin Business Resource Centre, Muma Manufacturing
Standing Ovation Award — Barb Muma, 94.1 myFM, Sam Aboumourad
