The Small Business BC Awards are the most visible awards program in BC for small business owners and

While individually small, these businesses have a big reputation across Canada and around the world,” says
George Hunter, CEO at Small Business BC. “I am delighted to see Kelowna’s vibrant business community entering
the Small Business BC 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 BC 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 November 30, 2015. The public is invited to nominate their
favourite small businesses for a Small Business BC 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.
