The local chapter of the Better Business Bureau has announced this year’s honorees for the 2018 Torch Award for Ethics, which recognizes companies that show a commitment to ethics, integrity, and building trust among their staff, customers, and communities in two categories — “Business of the Year” and “Charity of the Year.”

In Western Washington, Boundless Immigration — a Seattle-based company that offers an online platform to help people navigate the complicated immigration system confidently, quickly, and affordably with the assistance of immigration experts, attorneys, and people who have been through the immigration process themselves — was named Business of the Year.
