Small Business BC, the province’s premier resource centre for entrepreneurs, has announced the official opening of its 13th Annual Small Business BC Awards.

The Small Business BC Awards recognize the outstanding achievements of BC’s entrepreneurs. A key part of their mission is to celebrate the contributions new and existing small businesses registered in BC make to their local communities, and the global economy.

“Small business makes up 98 per cent of all businesses in the province and employs more than one million British Columbians,” says George Hunter, CEO at Small Business BC. “These businesses are critical to the economic health of every community in BC and we are delighted to acknowledge those making a difference.”

The public is invited to nominate, and vote for, their favourite small businesses for a Small Business BC Award between October 1 and November 30. Entrepreneurs may also nominate themselves. Businesses can compete in the following award categories:

  • Premier’s People’s Choice
  • Best Emerging Entrepreneur
  • Best Apprentice Training
  • Best Community Impact
  • Best International Trade
  • Best Company
  • Best Employer
  • Best Concept
  • Best Online Marketer
  • Best Workplace

“Small businesses are the backbone of communities across BC,” says Premier Christy Clark, “The Premier’s People’s Choice Award is an opportunity to recognize and celebrate a small business that goes the extra mile for its neighbours.”

The winners of each category will be announced at the Small Business BC Awards Ceremony on February 25, 2016 at the Pan Pacific Vancouver Hotel.
