Two Chilliwack businesses have been shortlisted for the annual Small Business BC Awards.

Two Chilliwack businesses have been shortlisted for the annual Small Business BC Awards.

British Columbians were given two months to nominate their favourite small businesses.

Making the Top 10 list in the selected categories was Mussell, which was nominated for Best Apprentice Training, and Intuitive Rehab Services, which was nominated for Best Workplace, Best Employer and Best Company.

The Small Business BC Awards are the most visible awards program in BC for small business owners and entrepreneurs. This year, 535 small businesses were nominated from 71 communities across British Columbia. These businesses were given two months to gain as many votes as possible.

Businesses in the Top 10 will now move forward to face a panel of judges, who will review their applications, and based on the award criteria, narrow down the competition to the Top 5 finalists in each category.

The winners of each category will be announced at the 13th annual Small Business BC Awards Ceremony on February 25 at the Pan Pacific Vancouver Hotel.

Recipients of Small Business BC Awards will be recognized with the Premier’s Prize in the amount of $1,500 cash. The winners will also be offered a one-year All-Access pass to Small Business BC education resources and experts, and one-on-one business mentorship opportunities with notable advisors from award sponsors.

More details on the Small Business BC Awards can be found at www.sbbcawards.ca.
