Do you have a favourite store in your neighbourhood, an amazing restaurant you eat at every week or a unique product you can’t live without? 

This is your chance to let them know and nominate them for a Small Business BC Award – because in BC, businesses don’t have to be big to make a big impact.

We would like to invite you to participate in this year’s contest. There are now 10 award categories, which include two brand new and exciting awards for Best Immigrant Entrepreneur and Best Emerging Entrepreneur.  

Nominations and voting happen from October 1 to November 30, 2014 and are accepted by both the business owners themselves and third-party nominations.

Winners will receive the Premier’s Prize of $1,500 cash, a one-year All-Access Pass to Small Business BC education and experts, professional business mentorship and the opportunity for extensive media exposure.   

 Of course, it’s not just about winning. Every nominated business will also be given exclusive access to valuable tools and resources throughout the competition. The farther you get in the competition, the more your business benefits.
