Sponsorship Opportunities

Small Businesses form the backbone of British Columbia’s economy, employing more than one million people while delivering essential services. The Small Business BC Awards, sponsored by Canada Post, recognize the entrepreneurs that make our province such an amazing place to live, work, and play through their efforts.

Since its inception in 2003, over 4,200 entrepreneurs have participated in this province-wide competition that’s free to enter and open to all new and existing small businesses in BC. In 2018 we celebrate our 15th year, and there are still some exciting opportunities for you to get involved.
