The Small Business BC Awards is British Columbia’s largest awards competition dedicated exclusively to small businesses. In 2023, the categories have been doubled so your business has even more opportunities to win.
The Premier’s People’s Choice Award is presented to a BC-based small business that can demonstrate they have the unwavering and loyal support of their community. The criteria for winning is simple: Get more votes than any other nominee. Businesses in this category are tasked with using any imaginative, creative, or traditional tactics available to them to engage their community to vote for them. At the end of the process, the business with the most votes (after vote normalization) wins. For additional information, see: https://smallbusinessbc.ca/awards/premiers-peoples-choice-award/
