Small Business Week – October 20 – 26, 2019

BDC Small Business Week is a national celebration of Canadian entrepreneurs and their contribution to Canada’s economy. The Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) has been organizing Small Business Week since 1979. It takes place every year during the third full week of October. Events held during the week bring together entrepreneurs—and prospective entrepreneurs—at conferences, workshops, luncheons and trade fairs across Canada. The goal is to provide them with opportunities to learn, network, share ideas and socialize with their peers.

The Camrose & District Chamber of Commerce is providing an opportunity for businesses to take part in the 35th Annual Business Excellence Awards, to be held on Thursday, October 24, 2019.

At this unique event the Chamber recognizes the contribution of businesses in the Camrose area. The Chamber of Commerce is fortunate to play a role in the growth of our diverse and vibrant business sector.

The Gala has evolved into a prestigious and highly anticipated event. Nominees and winners receive extensive local media coverage.
