BC Achievement is pleased to recognize the awardees of the 2020 IBA program through the #shinethelightbc campaign showcasing their outstanding business achievement and innovation. While their stories are unique, they all share the same remarkable spirit of entrepreneurship and resilience as they strive towards excellence.

We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia through the Ministry of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation.

I am inspired by the entire volume of Indigenous entrepreneurs that have come through this program. To see the increasing force of Indigenous business and how we are connecting to our families and communities and to our future in new ways through business – that inspires me and that is Indigenomics.
