SBBC Awards Launch January 20th

It’s that time of year once more! While you’ve been putting the finishing touches to your Holiday plans, we’ve been hard at work preparing the 19th Annual Small Business BC Awards. Before we break for the Holidays, we want to share a sneak peek at what we have in store for launch next month.

Launch Date

January is an opportunity for fresh starts, resolutions and new goals. Seems like the perfect time to launch our annual celebration of BC’s hard-working entrepreneurs. Nominations for the 2022 Small Business BC Awards will open on Thursday, January 20th. As usual, our community can nominate their own business, or a business they love, to be recognized in the SBBC Awards.

We’ll have information to share on our categories in the coming weeks.


In the Small Business BC Awards, every nominee comes away a winner. Participating offers an invaluable way to raise your business profile, exposing yourself to tons of marketing and PR opportunities. In fact, past finalists have been featured on Dragon’s Den, CBC, Global News, and even Forbes Magazine.

Each of our finalists receives a one-year, all-access pass to Small Business BC education and Talk to an Expert services. They’ll also receive professional media shareables to help with their marketing and access to SBBC expertise. Oh, and our four finalists will split a prize pool this year of $15,000.

Virtual Award Ceremony

The 19th Annual Small Business BC Awards will be delivered virtually in 2022, with a video presentation designed to celebrate the achievements of our province’s small business champions. Tune in and watch inspiring short films; get to know the passion behind why our finalists started their own business, the challenges they’ve overcome, and why small businesses are so important to our province.

Our Awards presentation will occur April 28th, 2022 and we’ll have information on how to register and take part soon.
