B.C.’s best small businesses will be recognized on February 25 during the 13th annual Small Business BC Awards ceremony.

Winners of the Small Business BC Awards will be announced at a ceremony at the Pan Pacific Hotel next month, after several months of nominations in which British Columbians had there chance to suggest their favourites.

A total of 626 nominations and 535 total published nominees from 71 communities across the province were considered and the top 10 semi-finalists were announced in December. The top five finalists will soon be announced on January 29.

Winners will receive the Premier’s Prize of $1,500 and a one year access pass to all Small Business BC education and resource opportunities.

“Small Business BC is delighted at the outpouring of support for this year’s competition from the BC business community,” says George Hunter, CEO at Small Business BC.

“The participation of greater numbers of nominees from even more communities across the province will make for an entertaining and very high spirited event. We’re looking forward to announcing the top five and celebrating not only the winners, but all entrepreneurs at the Small Business BC Awards Ceremony.”
