Better Business Bureau launches enhanced ‘business bible’

The Better Business Bureau serving Vancouver Island’s 2014 Directory is being greeted with enthusiasm by dependable business owners and discerning residents.

Published by Black Press, the BBB presents a comprehensive list of accredited businesses on Vancouver Island annually.

More than 135,000 of the 36-page Directories are being distributed from Victoria to Port Alberni this week.

“These are the businesses you want to do business with,” said president and CEO Rosalind Scott, who is based in Victoria. “Put it right next to your phone book. It’s like a little bible.”

In order to become an accredited business that gets listed in the Directory, a business must have been in operation for at least a year, have no unresolved complaints lodged against it, have established a positive presence in the marketplace and have a good rating with the Better Business Bureau, based on specific criteria.

“Not just any business can become a BBB accredited business. Only businesses that meet our Code of Business Practices and Standards of Trust are eligible,” said Scott. “We hold our accredited businesses accountable.

“This Directory is your comprehensive guide to local companies you can trust.”
