Every year the Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters recognize British Columbia’s top exporters and The BC Export Awards include a couple categories that might be of interest to tech companies. The Leadership, New Exporter, Advancing Technologies, and New Media & Entertainment categories are open to all BC companies that have been exporting a product or service for two or more years.
The BC Export Awards is a great opportunity for the tech community to support their local industry and showcase entrepreneurialism from across the province. This will be the 27th annual BC Export Awards and previous winners will congregate in Vancouver in November to celebrate BC’s Top 25 exporters.
“It was an truly an honour to be recognized as an export leader in British Columbia,” said Dr. John MacDonald, Chairman and CEO of Day4Energy, winner of Exporter of the Year award at the 2008 BC Export Awards. “The award has resulted in increased local awareness and support of our achievements and our employees are motivated by this recognition.”
You can nominate an outstanding exporter or apply for an award online. The deadline for nominations has been extended to July 10th and the application deadline is July 31st.
