Nominees have been selected by residents of BC who benefit from these businesses, with votes collected online using various social media platforms.

The Top Five finalists in each category will be announced Jan. 30. Winners will be honoured Feb. 28 at a ceremony where industry professionals, government officials, delegates, awards sponsors and media will hear success stories from previous award winners, network with entrepreneurs within British Columbia’s small business community and mingle at the reception prior to the ceremony.  The 2012 Successful You Awards Ceremony will be held at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Vancouver.
