The 2022 Indigenous Business Award program is open for nominations until midnight, June 30.
Since 2009, the IBA program has served to identify and recognize successful Indigenous businesses. It honours excellence and celebrates Indigenous business throughout the province. And in doing so, it supports and sustains Indigenous entrepreneurship while inspiring others to strive for the same.
Any person, group or organization can submit a nomination and business owners can even choose to self-nominate. As long as the business is at least 51% Indigenous owned and operated, is based in BC and has been in operation for at least two years, it qualifies.
An independent jury panel representing Indigenous business expertise throughout BC evaluates nominations based on the documentation provided. The panel selects the recipients in the categories of:
- Young Entrepreneur of the Year
- Business of the Year – 1-2 employees
- Business of the Year – 3-10 employees
- Business of the Year – 11+ employees
- Community-Owned Business of the Year – one entity
- Community-Owned Business of the Year – two or more entities
- Business Partnership of the Year
The Indigenous Business Award program aims to cultivate innovation while leveraging mutual interests. It creates an authentic space where collaborative and strategic partnerships can thrive together.
