Wightman Telecom makes short list for Tuned-in Canada: The CCSA Awards

CLIFFORD – Nationwide voting has opened for Tuned-in Canada: the CCSA Awards and local telecommunications company Wightman Telecom has been shortlisted for an award.

Tuned-in Canada: The CCSA Awards is a project sponsored by the Canadian Communication Systems Alliance (CCSA) and is designed to spotlight the work performed by CCSA members – local, independent providers of internet, television and telephone services in communities across Canada.

Wightman is up against three other nominees in the category of Best people: on-camera community channel personality. If they are the winner, the $1,000 prize for their category will be donated to a local charity of their choice.

“The CCSA has been running the awards since 2014, and has provided more than $40,000 to winning companies, who in turn have donated their winnings back to the communities where they live and work,” said Jay Thomson, CEO of CCSA. 

“We hope the citizens of Clifford and surrounding areas will embrace the community spirit at the heart of this friendly competition and bring out the vote to support their local nominee, Wightman.”

Nationwide online voting is open at Tuned-in Canada 2019. Voting takes place using SMS authentication and voters can cast one vote per day/deploy all votes until May 17 at midnight (Atlantic Daylight Time). 

Offline voting forms are also available for individuals who do not wish to participate online. 

Those who are interested in this option should contact Hope Reidt at hreidt@wightman.ca.

The winners will be announced on May 29.

The Canadian Communication Systems Alliance (CCSA) represents more than 110 independent companies providing internet, TV and telephone services across Canada.

Wightman is a family-owned business celebrating 111 years of service in 2019.

Wightman’s head office is located in Clifford, with additional offices in Hanover, Fergus and Stratford. The company operates in 19 communities in southwestern Ontario.
