Celebrate Small Business Week at SBBC

Each October, Small Business Week pays tribute to the entrepreneurs who contribute so much to our communities. They provide well paying, local jobs within our towns and cities, they bring energy, vibrancy and uniqueness to our streets, and they form the backbone of our provincial economy.
