Citation for BC Aboriginal Business Awards Achiever

Business of the Year - three-to-10 person enterprise

Kootenay Waste Services Ltd.


Jon Carlson is the proprietor of Kootenay Waste Services. Two years ago, he took a huge risk. Knowing nothing of the industry, he bought a company that had no capital and owed tens of thousands of dollars. He felt he could put his entrepreneurship and work ethic to the test. And it has paid off as his community- oriented family business continues to grow and increase its revenues!
