The contributions of these individuals, whether they’re new to home service or industry veterans, are helping to create stronger and more robust communities across North America, and it’s our honour to recognize that.”

Twenty-five entrepreneurs were selected from thousands of applications and rewarded with funds ranging from $2,500 to $15,000 USD to help grow and amplify the community impact of their home service businesses.

Toronto’s Michal Kenins and James May of Vista Tree Management Inc. were one of the recipients in the Career Builders category; Ashley and Matthew Grant of Mosquito Mom in Courtice, Ont., and Justin and Jolene Shewchuk, Double J Plumbing & Heating, in Okotoks, Alta. in the Home Services Heroes category; and Victoria, B.C.’s Alycia Wolosezky and Nicholas Twigg, Twigg Transformations, for the Community Caretakers category; and Ben Pennoyer of Ben’s Electric Solutions Team in Calgary, Alta.; and Vancouver, B.C.’s Callum Ng of Green Grads Window and Gutter Cleaning in the Smooth Operators category.


Individuals were selected based on written submissions, followed by interviews with a Jobber judging panel.

The top grant of $15,000 was given to Shane Fast, founder of Renew Painting located in Spartanburg, South Carolina.
