The Family Enterprise Xchange (FEX) is pleased to announce the winner of our Family Enterprise of the Year Award for 2018, ATCO Wood Products Ltd., a third generation family-owned business from the West Kootenays of British Columbia. ATCO Wood Products has for the past 60 years grown and evolved to become stewards of the forest and innovators in wood products manufacturing. Congratulations to the Weatherford family who will be receiving the Family Enterprise of Year Award for their dedication to a progressive work culture, customer service excellence and the responsible management of the region’s natural resources.


FEX would also like to recognize our FEYA finalists, Mott Electric GP and Reith & Associates Insurance and Financial Services Limited.

Established by William Mott in 1930, Mott Electric GP is one of the oldest and largest electrical contracting companies in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. With extensive experience and specialized knowledge in all aspects of electrical contracting, Daniel and Ellisha Mott oversee Mott Electric’s projects, including schools, hospitals, high-rise residential and multi-use buildings, substations, skytrain expansion and upgrades, hi-tech facilities, tunnels and bridges.


Reith & Associates Insurance and Financial Services Limited is an independent insurance and financial services brokerage located in St. Thomas, Ontario. A fourth generation family business led by brothers Dan and Darren Reith, the team of insurance and financial service professionals specialize in personal insurance, commercial insurance or life insurance and investments.


 Join us on September 26th for the FEYA: The Stories Behind These Successful Families panel at Symposium where our FEYA families will share the challenges they faced and the strategies they executed to operate a successful family business.

In the evening join us for the FEYA Celebration at Château des Charmes to honour these extraordinary family businesses. Be warned, there will be no speeches (well maybe one short welcome), no stage, no videos. This is a time to recognize achievements, celebrate our families, our friends, our colleagues and our community. 

Register for Symposium today! One (1) Family Enterprise Celebration ticket is included with full Symposium registration.

Château des Charmes was founded in 1978 by Paul Bosc, a fifth-generation French winegrower. Paul and his young family arrived in Niagara in the 1960’s with the idea that growing their own grapes was the best way to make fine wine. The Bosc family is committed to using sustainable practices and are charter members of Sustainable Winegrowing Ontario growing more than 30 world-class vintages.  .
