Entries Now Open for the 2024 Best of Canada Small Business Awards

Dedicated to recognizing the diverse accomplishments of small businesses throughout Canada, the Best of Canada Small Business Awards by BASA Awards serve to celebrate those who have exhibited excellence, innovation, and a significant positive impact within their communities.

Entries for The BASA AwardsⓇ will be accepted until August 30, 2024. Small businesses from all sectors and backgrounds are welcome to participate. This is an exciting opportunity for business owners to showcase their success stories and unique contributions to the Canadian business landscape.

"We are passionate about celebrating the unsung heroes of our economy – the small businesses that drive innovation, create employment opportunities, and enrich our communities. Despite their significant role, they often operate in the shadows of larger corporations. The Best of Canada Small Business Awards serves as a platform to rectify this oversight, acknowledging and elevating the remarkable achievements of small businesses," remarked Anna Stella, President of the BASA Awards Ⓡ.

Who Can Enter the Awards:

The awards are open to all thriving small businesses headquartered within Canada. Entrants are invited to demonstrate their business achievements, whether through innovative strategies, impactful projects, or remarkable growth trajectories. With six distinct tracks and over 150 award categories available, small business owners have ample opportunities to align themselves and highlight their unique strengths and achievements.

The BASA Awards Ⓡ Judging Panel:

The BASA Awards Ⓡ takes immense pride in its impartial judging process, overseen by a distinguished panel of independent industry experts. The organization is committed to transparency and fairness, ensuring that each entry is evaluated solely on its merits, free from external influences.

Anna Stella further emphasizes the importance of this, stating: "Transparent, authentic judging is important to BASA AwardsⓇ. It is one of our guiding principles and an attribute that we believe is important to a lot of small businesses. Often, small companies get overshadowed by large corporations who are able to influence the outcome of awards programs - of course, to their benefit. The BASA Awards Ⓡ will not engage in that - here, everything is transparent, there are no strings attached, no hidden agendas, no pre-planned outcomes."

About the BASA AwardsⓇ:

With a wide range of categories, the awards recognize businesses from all sectors for their invaluable contributions to the nation’s economy and society.
