To honour the many entrepreneurs making a difference in their communities, Small Business BC (SBBC) invites nominations for the annual Small Business BC Awards, presenting top business titles and $15,000 in prize money.
In 2020, two Gibsons businesses took home SBBC Awards. Ginger Jars was awarded for Best Community Impact for taking the bruised and misshapen products from local grocers and turning them into delicious food, lessening food waste in their community. High Beam Dreams won Best Immigrant Entrepreneur for their transformation of a church into an event space to serve the community.
Award nominations are open from January 20, 2022 to February 28, 2022. Nominations can be submitted at sbbc.co/nominate. Once a small business is nominated, they must gain as many public votes as possible for their business, leveraging all creative channels. Voting is collected on the SBBC website until February 28, 2022.
