About the Process – 2021

Each year, The Top 50 Under 50 program’s recipients are put together by an exclusive selection panel. This official list is peer-curated and carefully selected by a panel of community ambassadors, past recipients and the Balsom Communications Ltd. team.

Due to the nature of the process, Your McMurray Magazine’s editorial team ensures the panel includes individuals who work and volunteer in various sectors to create transparency and foster fairness for all the potential candidates to recognize in the Wood Buffalo region.
