Help us get the word out about BC's outstanding small businesses:


  1. Congratulations to all! Well deserved, you should be proud. Of course I’m a tad biased in the hopes that Cowichan Women Against Violence Society wins in their category. So many of our Vancouver Island neighbours too…WOW 👏

  2. Myrna Johnson

    Wishing Sue’s Clotheslines in Creston, BC all the best. Sue and staff over outstanding customer service year round – always greet with a smile and greeting. This year was the most money raised for the Creston Valley Christmas Hampers through Sue’s – Silent Auction, Secret Santa Stocking and craft goodies. I believe she is worthy of the “Premier’s People’s Choice” . Good luck to all.

  3. Jody Mitchell

    Filaprint is ready to roll into 2016!

    So pleased to see so many great new businesses in BC with an environmentally conservative approach to their business models. I am proud to be part of the generation for re-generation!

    All the best for 2016!

  4. Isabelle VIlleneuve .Happy New Year 2016!

    Happy for my niece/GODdaughter Sarah Bundy and her husband/partner Iain Bundy and the whole A.I.M. INC. team. Keep up the excellent ethics and representation in all your presentations. Happy New Year 2016!
    p.s. Proud of each one of you and all your achievements.
