In 2020, tbk was named to the Canadian Business Growth 500 list which ranks "Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies". In 2016, tbk was named Small Business of the Year at the London Chamber's Business Achievement Awards. And for five consecutive years (2016-2020), tbk has been named Top Web Design Provider in London by Consumer Choice Award.
