Victoria – Resilience, perseverance and innovation are the cornerstone of this year’s Small Business Week in BC, October 17-23.
The Province recognizes the more than 500,000 small businesses in B.C. that continue to adapt throughout the pandemic to keep people safe and provide the services people count on.
“The pandemic has tested each and every small business in every partof this province,” said Ravi Kahlon, Minister of Jobs, Economic Recovery and Innovation. “This week allows us to shine a well-deserved spotlight on the significant efforts and determination of our small businesses. From shifting sales to online platforms to the successful implementation of the B.C. vaccine card, small businesses continue to support their communities through these difficult times. I encourage everyone to show your appreciation this week, and all weeks, by supporting local businesses in your community.”
During Small Business Week 2021, entrepreneurs can take part in free webinars put on by Small Business BC and the Government of B.C. The webinars will offer educational tools to help businesses rebuild and recover from the pandemic.
