Cintas Launches 5th Annual Canada’s Best Restroom Contest

The Public Can Nominate Their Favourite Public Washroom at Until June 20, 2014

Mississauga, ON – March 26, 2014- Cintas Canada is now accepting nominations for the country’s best washroom facilities in the 5th Annual Cintas’ Canada’s Best Restroom Contest. Each year, Canada’s most noteworthy “places to go” are identified and then voted upon by the Internet public in the battle of the bowls.

“Cintas Canada launched the contest in 2010 to raise awareness of the importance of hygiene in public facilities,” says Cintas Canada’s Senior Marketing Manager Leslie Molin. “It makes smart business sense, and it’s an honour for us to recognize those businesses that strive for restroom excellence.”

The contest is open to any non-residential restroom in Canada that is accessible to the general public. Entriesare judged on cleanliness, visual appeal, innovation, functionality and unique design elements. In 2013, the winner was the Valleyview Shell Super Station in Alberta, which featured solid alder wood doors with privacy glass panels, sleek granite countertops, ornate carved mirrors and sparkling Victorian style semi-flush mount chandeliers.

“For the past four years we’ve received nominations of washrooms in truck stops to five star luxury hotels,” says Molin. “Whether in the most populated cities or the rural regions, our finalists are tied together by their commitment to customer service, clean facilities, and unique design elements.”

In addition to national recognition, this year’s winner will receive the royal washroom treatment- a grand prize of $2,500 to be redeemed for Cintas facility services.

Do you own your own establishment? Are you the creative mind or part of a team behind the washroom design inside of one? Or have you patronized a particularly memorable facility?

Anyone can nominate a deserving washroom at The deadline to do so is June 20, 2014.

Five finalists will be announced this summer, at which time online voting will begin. The winner and runner-up will be revealed this fall during a nationally publicized media event and then be enshrined in Cintas’ Canada’s Best Restroom Contest Hall of Fame.
