Services for Business or Home

Do you realize that small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) are the lifeblood of our economy?

iStock_000016273782SmallAccording to the Small Business Profile 2013: A Profile of Small Business in British Columbia (.pdf) there are about 385,900 small businesses in British Columbia, which account for 98% of all businesses, employing over a million British Columbians. This means 1/3 of all pay cheques are earned through small business. Our region, Vancouver Island and the Coast, has 69,500 small businesses ranging from single operators to 50 employees.
