2021 Small Business BC Award Winners

The winners of the 18th Annual Small Business BC Awards have been announced!

It was a year unlike any other for the SBBC Awards, with our usual Awards Gala making way for a week-long virtual celebration of entrepreneurship and resiliency with Awards Week 2021. Across four days, we announced our six deserving winners, capping a competition that saw 937 award nominations in 88 communities across BC.

The Small Business BC Awards have celebrated the success of small business owners for 18 years, shing a light on the hard-working and dedicated entrepreneurs in our province. Alongside our title sponsors, First West Credit Union, it was our privilege to recognize the hard-working and dedicated entrepreneurs in British Columbia, especially given the unique challenges they have had to navigate these last 12 months.

With six different categories, here are the winners of the 18th Annual Small Business BC Awards:
