Your McMurray Magazine's 2019 Best of YMM

(1 Vote)

Thanks to you, we’ve polled in thousands of votes based on your nominations for over 40+ subjects of who and what you call the “Best of YMM.”

The Best of YMM Breakdown

The initiative to showcase Fort McMurray's finest was launched this summer by asking the public to nominate their favourite food, people and places – many of the highest-ranked received hundreds of submissions.

We listed the best five based on the number of nominations submitted for each food, person and place. After tallying up the top for each subject, the voting polls opened, and thousands of residents took part in the process. (Submission entries were limited to one vote per day.) The results are here in our new Your McMurray Magazine feature. 

Congratulations to all of our 2019 Best of YMM nominees for being recognized, as you made an incredible impact on our community, and play an influential part in making our city the best place to live.

Want to nominate a “Best of YMM” for next year? Please send or contact us through any of the Your McMurray Magazine or YMM Parent Magazine social media channels.
