A key part of the Small Business BC Awards’ mission is to celebrate the contributions new and existing businesses registered in the province with fewer than 50 employees make to their local communities and the global economy.

“Small Business B.C. takes great pride in celebrating entrepreneurs and helping them to become more successful, said George Hunter, CEO at Small Business BC “While individually small, these businesses have a big reputation across Canada and around the world. I am delighted to see Surrey’s vibrant business community entering the Small Business B.C .Awards to be recognized for their achievements both locally and globally.”

Recipients of Small Business BC Awards will be recognized with the Premier’s Prize in the amount of $1,500 cash. The winners will also be offered a one-year all-access pass to Small Business B. education resources and experts, and one-on-one business mentorship opportunities with notable advisors from award sponsors.

The contest is open for nominations and voting until Nov. 30. The public is invited to nominate their favourite small businesses for an award.

Nominated business owners will be tasked with gaining as many votes as possible through social media, word of mouth, e-mail or any other means possible. The businesses with the highest number of votes in each award category will be announced as the Top 10 on Dec. 11. These nominees will submit a detailed application that judges will use to determine the Top 5 finalists from each award category, announced on Jan. 29, 2016. The Top 5 finalists will then be invited to present a 10-minute Dragons’ Den-style pitch to the judges to prove themselves as one of B.C.’s best.

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